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.
