Glengarry Glen Ross

 “Always be closing”.   Those words from David Mamet’s 1984 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play Glengarry Glen Ross have become synonymous with the key to the American Dream; the mantra that drives sales success. This production marks the 33rd anniversary of the drama, which Mamet wrote in 1982. It premiered in the 1983-1984 season at the Royal National Theatre in London. That same year, it made its American debut at Chicago’s Goodman Theatre before moving to Broadway’s Golden Theatre where it ran for a total of 378 performances.

Enter the world of Chicago real estate in the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s production of the cutthroat drama (onstage February 8 – 22); a world in which “the sale” is all that matters. In the middle of a high stakes sales competition, a group of tough-talking agents will do anything to close a deal and stay in the game: blackmail, bribery, intimidation and even burglary. This high-octane masterpiece will keep you in suspense as the businessmen fight to stay on top. But at the end of the day, will it all be worth it?

“We are thrilled to bring David Mamet’s work to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s stage,” said Andrew Kato, the Theatre’s producing artistic director. “Known for a street-smart edge, Mamet’s distinct style is raw and unparalleled. Glengarry Glen Ross is a challenging, thought-provoking drama by one of this century’s leading American playwrights.”

 “Mamet has written a scathing portrayal of the American Dream gone astray,” director J. Barry Lewis said. “But in spite of the daily grind of the real estate agents’ dog-eat-dog world, Glengarry Glen Ross is not so much about Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman as it is about spirit, toughness and the will to survive; how to turn hot property leads into cool, profitable closings. But at what personal cost?”

Sponsored by California Closets, Glengarry Glen Ross is onstage at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre February 8 – 22.
