Glengarry Glen Ross
It is a stroke of genius on behalf of The Gate to stage David Mamet's quick-paced, meaty drama at this time in Ireland's social and economic crisis. While we've all had it up to our eyes with the more explicit and thus more depressing "recession plays" (it can't be just me?), Glengarry Glen Ross instead focuses on the underhandedness that can arise from sheer desperation and does so in the loud-mouthed, sharp shooting manner synonymous with the American playwright at its helm. The Gate have teamed a fantastic play with a more than worthy cast including Owen Roe, Peter Hanly, Denis Conway, John Cronin, and Barry McGovern, for what is sure to be an explosive combination. This play is testosterone driven, loud and feisty and, while certainly a nod to desperate times and desperate measures closer to home, this tale of wheeling dealing in the property market is far from old hat.
