Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet says he has written a new play about Harvey Weinstein that is expected to head to Broadway, the Chicago Tribune reports. “I was talking with my Broadway producer and he said, ‘Why don’t you write a play about Harvey Weinstein?’ And so I did,” Mamet told the Tribune in an interview published late Thursday. Mamet gave no further details about when to expect a Broadway production about the disgraced movie mogul or on what the play would focus on. He explored the matter of sexual harassment decades before Weinstein’s downfall, in his 1992 play Oleanna, and said he is still struck by how society grapples with such issues today. “Every society has to confront the ungovernable genie of sexuality and tries various ways to deal with it and none of them work very well. There is great difficulty when you are switching modes, which we seem to be doing now. People go crazy. They start tearing each other to bits,” he told the Tribune.
