John can’t sleep. Tomorrow is the big father-son camping trip, but it’s late and his dad still hasn’t returned home. The other adults seem to know something he doesn’t, but the things they’re saying don’t seem to be what they’re really talking about. A rarely produced masterpiece, The Cryptogram is Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet’s thrilling and provocative attempt to decipher and demystify what lies in the heart of family relations and communication in the “grown-up” world.

“Strong, edgy and bracingly evocative theater.”
– Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

“This is undoubtedly a major work from one of America’s greatest living dramatists.”
– Daily Telegraph, London
