Fall Theater Performance: Glengarry Glen Ross
Sunday, November 11, 2007 - 2:00pm
David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize-winning dark comedy exposes a dog-eat-dog world, where a few small-time, ruthless, real-estate salesmen scramble for their fair share of the American Dream. At once hilarious and disturbing, the play presents a Darwinian battle between men who scheme, cheat, curse, plead, steal, despair and connive in an attempt to get "on the board", each revealing a seamy side of human nature. The board is the office chart that marks who is ahead in the sales race, peddling vacation property. Number one gets a Cadillac, and someone might get the ax. Glengarry Glen Ross is a mix of hilarity and fury. Filled with shocking twists and turns, this cold-blooded drama is guaranteed to keep audiences breathless and on the edge of their seats. Originally performed in London, it was the winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 4 Tony Awards, and in 2005, it won the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play.
