A Chick & A Dude Productions presents David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross--a hard-hitting portrayal of cutthroat office politics--through sharp dialogue and strong social commentary. The 1984 Pulitzer Prize winner for drama is directed by Melissa Livingston-Weaver (2003 B. Iden Payne winner for Best Director of a Drama and 2011 B. Iden Payne nominee for Best Director of a Drama).
A dark dramatic comedy, Glengarry follows the lives of four smalltime, cutthroat real estate salesmen grinding out a living by pushing overpriced, undesirable plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their share of the American dream. Company big wigs Mitch and Murray declare a month-long 'sales contest'. The top salesman wins a new Cadillac and the bottom two men lose it all--egos, money and their jobs. The four salesmen sweet-talk, plan, and scheme for the perfect client and the hot 'Glengarry' leads, which Mitch and Murray make clear are for 'closers' only. How far will the four go to get to the leads in order to schedule a 'sit' at the perfect victim's residence?
