Goodman & Sturridge join Lewis in American Buffalo
John Goodman released a statement, saying:
Synopsis: "As three small-time crooks, Donny Dubrow, Walter 'Teach' Cole and Bobby plan one big-time heist, a tragedy of errors spins this razor-sharp and darkly funny play into a blistering account of divided loyalties, insatiable greed… and a coveted Buffalo nickel."
American Buffalo also features scenic and costume design by Paul Wills and lighting design by Mark Henderson.
