What does Mamet convey to the audience? Is there ambiguity?

Talking about three scenes. 24 to 27 from

CAROL: ‘Any of it.’

to

JOHN: ‘A surprise

35 to 36 from

JOHN: ‘Ff . . . fine. Gg . . . good-bye (Hangs up.

Pause.) I’m sorry we were interrupted.’

to

CAROL: ‘LET ME GO. LET ME GO. WOULD SOMEBODY HELP ME?

WOULD SOMEBODY HELP ME PLEASE?’

46 to 47 from

JOHN: ‘And, and, I owe you a debt, I see that now . . .’

to

The end of the play.

In the scenes we find find two people in tight quarters in a power

struggle. What does Mamet convey to the audience? Is there ambiguity? Did you imagine something else from just reading the script?

and What are the ideas behind the physical actions? How does the physicality work dramatically?
