David Mamet’s 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning Glengarry Glen Ross will be the inaugural theatrical production at the new flexible performance space in Beaumont Studios, 326 W. 5th Avenue, Vancouver. Classic Chic Productions (CCP), the women that brought you the sizzling all-female The Winter’s Tale (2014), tackle Mamet’s blistering masterpiece about sleazy, small-time, real estate salesmen desperate to sucker buyers into bad deals.
This scalding comedy took Broadway and London by storm. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream. Revived on Broadway in 2005 and 2012, this masterpiece of American drama also became a celebrated film which starred Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin and Alan Arkin.
“Crackling tension… ferocious comedy and drama.” – The New York Times
