"You people can't order a cheese sandwich without mentioning the Holocaust," the Defense Attorney says. The Defendant complains: "I hired a goy lawyer. It's like going to a straight hairdresser." In his new play "Romance", David Mamet takes on the possibility to finally bring peace to the Middle East by realigning Israeli and Palestinian spines, and discusses the alleged homosexuality of Wiiliam Shakespeare. Some critics didn't like Mamet's "take-no-prisoners", politically incorrect approach -- nor his use of ethnic and sexual stereotypes. As Mamet has said in the past, "I didn't realise it was my job to be politically acceptable".
