This scalding comedy took Broadway and London by storm. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream. Revived on Broadway in 2005 and 2012, this masterpiece of American drama also became a celebrated film which starred Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin and Alan Arkin.

In GLENGARY GLEN ROSS, David Mamet earns his notable reputation as he leads his audiences into the coarse and unforgiving world of 1980s real estate sales. In classic Mamet fashion, characters speak in speedy fragmented bursts and bulldoze their way through one another in what is ultimately one long, desperate struggle for professional dominance. Old Shelly “The Machine” Levene is fighting tooth and nail just to stay in the game while the king of commissions, Richard Roma, continues to demolish his competition. And who in this office was desperate enough to break in and steal the good leads? Packed with memorable lines and unforgettable speeches, there’s a reason this play has had two revivals in the last ten years. Mamet’s vision of Chicago real estate sales is harsh, unforgiving, and lives by its owned skewed morality. For Mamet fans, this is a must own.
