Initial casting has been announced for Sam Yates' production of Glengarry Glen Ross which will embark on a UK tour following its West End run last year.

Olivier Award-winner Nigel Harman (EastEnders, Shrek) will play Ricky Roma, with Mark Benton (Waterloo Road) as Shelly 'The Machine' Levene. Further casting to be announced.

David Mamet's play is set in a real estate office where sleazy and foul-mouthed salesmen work against one another and compete to see who can bring in the most profit in a single month.

Yates' production, which has design by Chiara Stephenson and lighting by Richard Howell, opened at the Playhouse Theatre in November 2017, featuring an all-star cast including Christian Slater, Kris Marshall, Robert Glenister and Don Warrington.

In her review for WhatsOnStage, Sarah Crompton praised the 'poetry of Mamet's Pulitzer-prize winning writing.'

The tour will hit the road in February 2019 starting in Woking before heading to Birmingham, Manchester, Milton Keynes, Glasgow, Richmond, Brighton and Cardiff with further tour dates to be announced.
