What are some great, dramatic, one- or two-act plays that work with three or fewer actors and require minimal stagecraft?

It's been a very long time since I've read any new(ish) plays, so I'm thinking I'm far behind on what the good possibilities are ... but myself and two friends are interested in putting on some live performances for some small local crowds, and I'm looking for great and compelling plays that involve one, two or three actors; as few props and backdrops as possible; and an emphasis on the strength of the performances and the story rather than the visuals.
I'm a David Mamet fan, and a fan of clear and concise language. What are some titles I should read up on?
