David Mamet's acclaimed masterpiece Glengarry Glen Ross, first performed in 1983, returns to the West End this Autumn for its first major revival in over a decade.
Christian Slater, Robert Glenister, Kris Marshall, Stanley Townsend and Don Warrington star in the show which will run at the Playhouse Theatre from 26 October to 2017 to 3 February 2018.
A ground-breaking modern classic, Glengarry Glen Ross 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 Mr 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.
