|The Library's previous Mamet play Speed-The-Plow|
Library books Mamet's Glengarry
Date: 22 December 2009
Following their critically acclaimed production of David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow was nominated for Best Production in the 2006 Manchester Evening News Awards, the Library Theatre will revisit the American playwright's work in March.
Glengarry Glen Ross follows four desperate Chicago real estate salesmen. This month’s top guy wins a gleaming Cadillac, the runner-up takes home a set of steak knives, the rest get the sack. Admire their know-how and their slickness. Wonder at their dream-selling and their hokum. Be appalled by their double-dealing and chicanery.
This gripping drama of hard-driven men on the edge and at the edge, won a Pulitzer Prize and recently layed in the West End with Jonathan Pryce leading the cast. This new production is directed by Chris Honer.
Glengarry Glen Ross runs from 12 March - 3 April at the Library Theatre.
