Four desperate Chicago real estate agents are prepared to do anything to get the sale. The houses may be undesirable, even unsellable, but they are expensive and so come with huge commission. As time ticks away, the increasingly aggressive agents turn to more and more underhanded tactics to be the top seller. Close the deal and you’ve won a Cadillac, blow the lead and you’re out. David Mamet’s widely acclaimed Glengarry Glen Ross plays a limited, fourteen-week season at the Playhouse Theatre from 26 October 2017 to 3 February 2018 – it’s business as usual, but the stakes climb ever higher.

Mamet’s production celebrates its 24th year since the world premiere in London’s National Theatre in 1983. Glengarry Glen Ross has seen a number of successful revivals on both sides of the pond and a 1992 film adaptation starring legends such as Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey and Al Pacino – it even had a role specially written in for Alec Baldwin. On the stage, Mamet won the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1983 Olivier Award for Best Play with his original script. A 2005 revival on Broadway provided two additional Tony Awards for Best Revival of a Play and Best Featured Actor in a Play for Liev Schreiber. The West End hasn’t seen Glengarry Glen Ross for ten years, since Jonathan Pryce and Aiden Gillen took on roles at the Apollo Theatre.

This is a show studded with both accolades and stars – the latest revival promises to be no different. Directed by one of the tipped future stars in his field, Sam Yates, Glengarry Glen Ross stars Christian Slater as the lead, with Kris Marshall, Robert Glenister, Stanley Townsend and Don Warrington in other roles. With such theatrical acumen in the cast and a director that has recently put on work at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse (Cymbeline), the Arts Theatre (Murder Ballad) and Trafalgar Studios (East Is East), Glengarry Glen Ross promises to be another huge success in Mamet’s glittering line-up of powerful productions.

Mamet’s other works are widely celebrated in London too – most recently, Damian Lewis took on American Buffalo at Wyndham’s Theatre and Lindsay Lohan featured in Speed-The-Plow, also at the Playhouse Theatre. With such a successful track record in London, Mamet’s latest work is an explosive end to an eventful year, showing how far people are willing to go when desperation sets in and both money and pride are on the line.

Glengarry Glen Ross ends the Playhouse Theatre 2017 season with a bang, a show full of visceral, violent and volatile action in Mamet’s trademark style. This will be a show not to miss, so book your tickets now before they’re all gone!

Limited creativity with language

Too much use of swearing to the detriment of meaningful dialogue. whilst we are in the upper age group we are not by any means adverse to using swearing where appropriate. We felt this was used excessively and unnecessarily. thought the use of using the audience toward the end was excellent.

Disappointed with this show. We walked out. Stronge bad language Made it hard to keep to the story. This should be rated as a 15+ not 13+

London Box Office customer

A huge deception !

The story is boring, there is nothing to it none of the characters are likable... avoid !

London Box Office customer

Fantastic performance and thoroughly enjoyable for fans of the movie.

We wouldn’t be regular theatre goers but this show really stopped us in our tracks. The entire cast were phenomenal. A truely magical night.
