Glengarry Glen Ross

Date: 3 Feb 2021

Lies. Greed. Corruption. It’s business as usual in the cut-throat world of real estate sales.

The mantra is simple: Close the deal and you’ve won a Cadillac; blow the lead and you’re f****d.

David Mamet’s lacerating satire won the 1983 Olivier Award for Best Play and the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and was later adapted by the playwright into a film starring Jack Lemmon and Al Pacino.

Originally written for an all-male cast, this production, directed by Louise Fischer, will blur the gender lines to reveal startling and unexpected insights into Mamet’s depiction of blunt, brutal, toxic masculinity. As relevant now as it was three decades ago, this brilliant, scathing comedy, infused with humanity and honesty, will provoke both laughter and chills in anyone who’s ever questioned unbridled capitalism.

Adrian Adam, Oliver Burton, Ben Brock, Mark Langham, Caroline Levien, Hannah Raven, Meg Shooter and Andrew Simpson feature.
