Glengarry Glen Ross at Seattle Rep

Four very competitive real estate agents go head-to-head in an intense sales competition, often employing underhanded and unethical conduct as they do just about anything to make a sale to unwilling, unwitting or unqualified buyers.  It may sound like a snippet from recent financial headlines, and perhaps it was, but it is also the plotline of David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross.

Glengarry Glen Ross The sales competition is a bread and butter matter for the salesmen, as two will continue to have a job and two will get fired.  As they compete for leads, they lie, cheat, and even steal, as each man justifies his actions in the battle for job survival.  Who “wins” and who “loses” is up for interpretation, and may be a commentary about the great journey of life.

The All-Star All-Seattle cast is led by John Aylward (best known for his appearances on television’s ER and West Wing) and R. Hamilton Wright, and backed with a supporting cast of seasoned Seattle actors.
