HIGH OCTANE, BLACK-COMEDY ABOUT POWER, BETRAYAL AND SUCCESS
In a fly-by-night office in Chicago, four desperate real estate agents are in the final days of a high stakes sales competition. The rules are simple: the winner gets a new Cadillac, second place a set of steak knives and the rest are f**k*d. As the stakes rise, everything is for sale and a price must be paid.
Nearly forty years after David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross sensationally burst onto the stages of the world, becoming an instant cult classic, it remains a devastating and hilarious, modern-day morality tale about a burnt-out American dream and the business of capitalism.
Premiering in 1983 at London’s National Theatre, Glengarry won the Olivier Award for Best Play. The following year it opened on Broadway receiving the prestigious Pulitzer Prize, NY Drama Critics’ Award plus numerous Tony Award nominations. In 1992 the play was adapted by Mamet into an Academy Award nominated film.
Rating: 15+ (includes coarse language)
"David Mealor’s take on Glengarry Glen Ross for his Flying Penguin Productions is nothing short of superb. This was to be the 15th anniversary for the much-lauded company. Thanks to the pandemic it’s 15 plus one but still a very happy anniversary indeed for a jewel in the crown of Adelaide’s vibrant theatre scene."
David Mealor has brought together an outstanding Ensemble. The Flying Penguins are souring again with this production. I have said before – Adelaide needs a permanent rep company of this calibre to remind us of the richness of the theatre of the recent past, those plays which have been left in the drawer too long.
