The winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for drama, David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross offers audiences a snake’s-eye view of the real estate business. In that world, knowing the shot, closing the deal, and getting up on the Cadillac board are all that matter. And desperation reigns.
Nearly a quarter of a century after its London premiere and successful Broadway run, Glengarry’s cocktail of ambition and agony still impacts our popular culture—from the sheepish Gil on The Simpsons to Entourage’s Ari Gold.
The New York Times’ Ben Brantley wrote "[it] feels like having espresso pumped directly into your bloodstream." Brimming with intense, crackling dialogue, Glengarry Glen Ross reveals the dark underside of the American Dream.
Warning: There is adult language in the play.
The cast list includes Wabash students: Kyle Cassidy and Spencer Elliot (pictured left), Dustin Foster, Matt Goodrich, Josuè Gutièrrez, Patrick McAlister, James Morey, and Luke Robbins.
James Cherry is the director. Assistant Director is Nelson Barre and stage manager is Cody Grady.
