Deep Dish Theater Presents Mamet Play
Cutthroat competition reaches new heights in "Glengarry Glen Ross," David Mamet's Pulitzer prize-winning play presented by Deep Dish Theater Company Friday, Oct. 23 to Saturday, Nov. 14. This modern classic, directed by Deep Dish Artistic Director Paul Frellick, will continue the company's ninth season.
"The play is a wild ride through desperate economic times," said Frellick. "Although it was first produced over 25 years ago, it couldn't feel any more contemporary."
When sales slump at a ruthless Chicago real estate office, a closeout contest gives four agents extra incentive to dump undesirable land on unsuspecting buyers. The stakes are high: a prized Cadillac for the winner, pink slips for two who fail. As pressure mounts and desperation sets in, it's every man for himself in the struggle to come out on top. Drawn partly on Mamet's experiences working in a similar office in the late 1960s, "Glengarry Glen Ross" won the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for drama.
Performances begin Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday (matinee) at 2 p.m.

They are available at the Deep Dish box office in University Mall, Wednesday to Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m., at www.deepdishtheater.org, or (919) 968-1515.
