About the Play:

The volume No One Will be Immune and Other Plays and Pieces contains short pieces, sketches and one-act plays by David Mamet. This series of plays by Pulitzer Prize winning author David Mamet gives you enigmatic characters trying to communicate their truths. Some plays will answer questions, others will leave you with more questions than you started with. No One Will be Immune is about a man's disturbing tale of why he forced a plane to return to its gate. Also includes 12 more vintage short pieces, sketches and one-act plays. Some humorous, some poignant, each play will shed light on the difficulties we all share in communicating with one another, opening worlds of discourse, mystery, nostalgia, and love.
