GLEN ROSS by David
GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS by David Mamet -September/October 2000
The Ramshorn Theatre, Glasgow
ABOUT THE PLAY
Gentlemen, this is the sales competition.
First prize, a cadillac.
Second prize, a set of steak knives.
Third prize: you're fired.
Mamet's searing drama revolves around the high pressure lives of real estate salesmen, struggling
to cope with their job and their personal lives under the threat of their latest sales competition
Glengarry Glen Ross was first presented in the Cottesloe auditorium
of the National Theatre, London, on 21 September 1983.
Scotland on Sunday : Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross won him a Pulitzer Prize in 1984, and Theatre Fusion's accomplished presentation leaves us in little doubt as to why.…
Douglas Brice's simple, tightly faithful production focuses on the play's potent mixture of greed, claustrophobia and humiliation. Alan Bryant's lewd, avaricious Richard Roma and Ian Aldred's growlingly desperate Shelly Levene are outstanding.
Ian Aldred as the ageing, desperate Shelly Levene... Alan Bryant's fine work as the amoral and testosterone-poisoned Richard Roma; Jack Hodes' hilarious turn as the nervy Aaronow and Mark Coleman's cynical Moss losing the plot and his dignity.
Director Douglas Brice takes no liberties... and manages to deliver a fast-moving and very enjoyable production.
