Glengarry Glen Ross has been referred to as “Mamet at his very best”. It is a play about small-time, and fairly desperate sales agents who are prepared to engage in any number of unethical and illegal acts (lies, flattery, bribery, threats, intimidation, and burglary) to sell undesirable real estate to unwitting prospective buyers. The action in the lives of these agents takes place in and around the sales office during the final two days of an office wide sales contest. Glengarry Glen Ross saw its debut in London in 1983, premiering on Broadway in 1984; it was revived there in 2005 and 2012. Mamet adapted Glengarry Glen Ross, called a masterpiece of American drama, for film release in 1992. With the express permission of Mr. Mamet, Different Strokes’ Performing Arts Collective’s production features an all-female cast.
