The Gate Theatre is delighted to present David Mamet's acclaimed play Glengarry Glen Ross in a new production directed by Tony award winning director Doug Hughes.
Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet's comedy is nonetheless a ruthless play about small-time, cutthroat real estate agents. Behind the suave exteriors are lies, blackmail, scheming and desperation, all in a day's work. This is Mamet's writing at its best, an abrasive attack on American business and a withering depiction of the men whose lives and values are twisted in order to survive.

His is a multi award-winning career, including Tony (Best Director Doubt), Obie, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Lucille Lortel and Callaway awards. In 2005, he was awarded his second Obie Award for Sustained Excellence in Direction.
Under his direction the creative team will include set design by Neil Patel, lighting design by Michael Chybowski and costume design by multi Emmy award winning designer Joan Bergin.
The cast of Glengarry Glen Ross will include: Owen Roe, Peter Hanly, Denis Conway, John Cronin, Patrick Joseph Byrnes, Barry McGovern and Reg Rogers
