About the showAn all-star cast leads a major revival of David Mamet’s multi-award winning 1980’s play Glengarry Glen Ross at London’s Playhouse Theatre. Well-known as the 1992 film starring Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino and Alex Baldwin, the production marks the first return of the play to the West End since the 2007 Apollo Theatre revival.
Lies. Greed. Corruption. It’s all to play for in Glengarry Glen Ross, which takes place in the cut-throat office of a group of Chicago salesman. Willing to go to any lengths to secure a deal, whether legal or not, time is running out. As they fight to push the most real estate, one thing becomes clear: close the deal and you’ve earned yourself a Cadillac; lose the deal and you’re f****d.
American actor Christian Slater (Heathers, Mr Robot) returns to the West End for the first time since his acclaimed performance in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, alongside a stellar cast including stage and screen actors Kris Marshall, Robert Glenister, Stanley Townsend and Don Warrington.
Glengarry Glen Ross is directed by Sam Yates, who recently directed Murder Ballad at the Arts Theatre, starring Kerry Ellis and Ramin Karimloo. From the writer of award-winning plays such as Speed-the-Plow and American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross earned David Mamet the 1983 Olivier Award for Best Play, as well as the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Playing a limited 14-week season at the Playhouse Theatre, Glengarry Glen Ross comes to the West End at a time when the American Dream is under fierce debate. The production runs from November 9th 2017 to February 3rd 2018, with previews beginning October 26th 2017.
Who Should See It?Fans of David Mamet plays will be thrilled by the first major revival on stage in over a decade, featuring a star-studded cast. It’s a great opportunity to catch Christian Slater on stage, and the play seems incredibly relevant, even now!
