GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS – AUDITION INFORMATION – THE PENNINGTON PLAYERS

GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS: David Mamet’s 1984 Pulitzer Prize winning play, “Glengarry Glen Ross”, is about the struggles of four shady small-time salesmen in a small branch of a larger real estate company located in Chicago. Taking place over two business days in the mid-80s, the play portrays the dog-eat-dog world of real estate and the ends ruthless salesmen will go to in order to sell overpriced and undesirable land to uninterested and reluctant potential buyers. The cutthroat conniving salesmen resort to trickery, bribery, deceit, lying, and theft. This dark play successfully illustrates the social Darwinist nature of the shady world of real estate in a big city and the Darwinian rules of the desperate salesmen’s game.
