Glengarry Glen Ross at the Playhouse Theatre starring Christian Slater
David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize winning cult classic Glengarry Glen Ross returns to the West End with an all star cast.
Christian Slater (Mr Robot, True Romance, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), Robert Glenister (Hustle, Spooks), Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise, Love Actually, My Family), Stanley Townsend (Girl from the North Country, The Nether) and Don Warrington (Death in Paradise, Rising Damp) are the ‘deal chasing’ cut-throat sales team in David Mamet’s masterpiece, Glengarry Glen Ross.
At a time of fierce debate about the American Dream and what it represents, Glengarry Glen Ross is a lacerating satire for modern society, highlighting how economic austerity can affect the morality and greed of individuals under financial pressure.
Directed by Sam Yates (Murder Ballad), this trailblazing modern classic will play a limited 14 week run at London’s Playhouse Theatre.
Glengarry Glen Ross runs from 26 October 2017 until 3 February 2018 at the Playhouse Theatre.
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.
Playwright: David Mammet
Directed by Sam Yates.
