"Comedy arises out of necessity, because some things are so dark that you have to laugh about it," says Mamet. "In this show there are very uncomfortable, very real situations that can make me cry and laugh at the same time."
"This time period has been written about before, but in a very glossy way," says Mamet in a determined near-whisper. "People idealize or reminisce about their 20s, but nobody tells you beforehand that it's hard and unglamorous and often very unpleasant. What Lena has written reveals that, and it speaks to a lot of people."
