Close the deal – you’re a winner. Blow the deal – lose it all.

Lies, bribery and manipulation. Glengarry Glen Ross follows four Chicago real estate agents that are prepared to do just about anything to stay at the top of their game. With scintillating dialogue that will have you on the edge of your seat, Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet’s brilliant dark comedy asks: just how far will you go to close the deal?

Directorial Debut
Artistic Producer of the Segal Centre, Paul Flicker, makes his directorial debut with this contemporary classic: “I am delighted to make my first steps as a director with David Mamet’s incredible text. Glengarry Glen Ross was written at the height of Mamet’s dramatic and literary power and remains as completely mesmerizing and relevant as when it was first performed in 1983.

Mamet’s World
A scorching examination of Reagan-Era capitalism and an unflinching look at the American dream, Glengarry Glen Ross was awarded the 1984 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. The hit-play was turned to the 1992 cult film, with Mamet’s own script, starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin and Alan Arkin.

An Exceptional Ensemble
Montreal theatre-goers will have the rare opportunity to see a significant work by one of America’s foremost living playwrights brought to life by a dazzling collection of actors. Leading Canadian film, television and stage actor R.H. Thomson (Harvey, Same Time, Next Year) returns to the Segal stage as aging salesman Shelley “The Machine” Levene. He is joined by Brett Watson as smooth-talking Ricky Roma, Daniel Lillford as big-mouthed Dave Moss, Michel Perron as the hapless George Aaronow, Graham Cuthbertson as the office manager, John Williamson, Mike Paterson as James Lingk and Tristan D. Lalla as detective Baylen.
