David Mamet's tale sees a group of Chicago salesman pitched against each other in the world of real estate, each willing to do anything, legal or otherwise, to sell the most real estate. In this world of high stakes and hard sell, the mantra is simple: close the deal and you've won a Cadillac; blow the deal and you're f****d.
"Let me have your attention for a moment... We're adding a little something to this month's sales contest. As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac Eldorado. Anybody want to see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're fired." With these words, the cut-throat sales team at a Chicago Real Estate agency are thrown into the worst week of their working lives, in David Mamet's 'Glengarry Glen Ross', one of the finest portrayals of the money-obsessed 1980s.
The aggressive masculinity of the dialogue - which was so profane that thecast of the 1992 movie renamed it 'Death of a f****** salesman - and the ferocious tension between the four male leads make this one of Mamet's greatest works. In this new production at the ApolloTheatre, Jonathan Pryce plays the past-it old hack Shelley Levene, while Aiden Gillen (most recently seen as the ambitious Councillor Tommy Carcetti in 'The Wire') is the thrusting young Ricky Roma.
