Thanks to our friends at Black Swan State Theatre Company, we have a double pass to Glengarry Glen Ross to give away!
IT TAKES BRASS BALLS TO SELL REAL ESTATE.
A master work of modern theatre about greed, desperation and ruthless ambition.
Internationally acclaimed and the subject of a critically admired ?lm, David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning story of salesmen struggling to stay a?oat in the cut-throat world of Chicago real estate is not to be missed.
Equal parts snappy dialogue, black humour and verbal abuse, Glengarry Glen Ross follows four real estate agents presented with a dilemma: sell undesirable property to unwilling buyers or ?nd a new job. Ricky Roma is the smooth talker, Shelly “The Machine” Levene is on a bad run, George Aaronow su?ers from low self-esteem and Dave Moss is the bigmouth with dreams and schemes.
With the o?ce manager, John Williamson, selling prime leads for cash, the four men go to any lengths — including bribery, threats and burglary — to close the deal.
