Glengarry Glen Ross
After its sell-out run in the West End wowing critics and audiences alike, this darkly funny production of David Mamet’s acclaimed masterpiece Glengarry Glen Ross is touring the UK.
Well loved and acclaimed TV and stage stars Nigel Harman and Mark Benton are the deal-chasing cut throat salesmen in this ‘razor-sharp’ revival of Mamet’s Olivier and Pulitzer prize-winning masterpiece.
This ground-breaking modern classic has won every major dramatic award on Broadway and in the West End, including the 1983 Olivier Award for Best Play and the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and was later adapted by Mamet for the 1992 film starring Jack Lemmon and Al Pacino. At a time of fierce debate about the American Dream and what it represents, Glengarry Glen Ross is a lacerating satire for modern society.
Lies. Greed. Corruption. It’s business as usual.
Set in an office of cut-throat Chicago salesmen. Pitched in a high-stakes competition against each other, four increasingly desperate employees will do anything, legal or otherwise, to sell the most real estate. As time and luck start to run out, the mantra is simple: close the deal and you’ve won a Cadillac; blow the lead and you’re f****d.
