Why See Glengarry Glen Ross?
David Mamet's searing look at the cost of greed and the lure of riches makes a welcome return to London this autumn in this new production led by Christian Slater and Kris Marshall. Considered a modern American classic, Mamet introduces us to four Chicago real estate agents who, upon learning their jobs are in danger, will settle at nothing to protect them. Robert Glenister, Stanley Townsend, and Don Warrington round out what is sure to be a stunning and provocative revival.
A household name, Christian Slater is a captivating performer whose turns in True Romance, Heathers and more have carved him a niche as a charming but unstable hot-head, something which will come in very handy whilst navigating this masterpiece.
Fresh from Death in Paradise and teasing us all about those Doctor Who rumours, we're super exhilarated to have Kris Marshall back and to see him sink his teeth into the show.
For Sale: The Story of Glengarry Glen Ross
Welcome to a vicious struggle for dominion and money. Key to flipping undesirable property is the group's propensity to lie, steal and cheat their customers as they pursue power, riches and the American Dream at the expense of morality and legality. Darkly comic and as profanity laden as you'd expect from Mamet, we learn just how much one can comprise their souls for victory over others.
