Glengarry Glen Ross

“Third prize is, you’re fired.”

One of the finest collection of actors ever put together on the same set verbally abuse each other in a hail of weary, nasty dialogue — each line crackling with hatred, regret, and pathos.

They’re salesmen, or the slime buckets put in place to goad said salesmen, and they’re all looking for a big payoff that probably isn’t coming any time soon.

David Mamet’s bristling play springs to life under the direction of James Foley, with each actor given a chance to roar.

If coffee is for closers, everyone in this cast is drinking tonight.
