Glengarry Glen Ross Tickets

Christian Slater stars in the first major revival of David Mamet’s 1980’s play Glengarry Glen Ross, directed by Sam Yates (Murder Ballad). With a star-studded cast, including Kris Marshall and Don Warrington, the production sees a group of cut-throat salesman fight to secure a deal – at any cost. Glengarry Glen Ross plays a limited 14-week season at the West End’s Playhouse Theatre.

Sam Yates directs a major revival of David Mamet’s multi-award winning 1980’s play Glengarry Glen Ross at London’s Playhouse Theatre, marking the first return of the production to the West End since the 2007 Apollo Theatre show, starring Jonathan Pryce. Playing for a limited 14-week season, the revival features a star-studded cast, including acclaimed American actor Christian Slater.

Lies, greed and corruption are all part of the game. Set in a high-pressure, cut-throat Chicago office, a group of salesmen are willing to go to any lengths to secure a deal. Whether legal or not, they are determined to push as much real estate as possible. But as time and luck begins to run out, one thing becomes painfully clear. Close the deal and you’re a winner. Lose the lead and you’re out.

Christian Slater, well-known for his appearances in Heathers and Mr Robot, returns to the West End for the first time since starring in the acclaimed 2004 and 2007 productions of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Further casting includes Kris Marshall (Love Actually, Death in Paradise), Don Warrington (Death in Paradise), Robert Glenister (Hustle, Law & Order: UK) and Stanley Townsend (Florence Foster Jenkins).

Originally premiering at the National Theatre in 1983, directed by Bill Bryden, Glengarry Glen Ross went on to receive its Broadway premiere in the following year. After receiving tremendous critical acclaim, the production received every major theatre award, including the 1983 Olivier Award for Best Play and the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Sam Yates directs the production, with previous credits including Murder Ballad at the Arts Theatre and East is East at Trafalgar Studios. From the writer behind plays including American Buffalo and Speed-the-Plow, Glengarry Glen Ross is a pertinent play that remains startlingly relevant at a time when the debate of the American Dream is under fierce scrutiny.

Featuring an all-star cast, Glengarry Glen Ross plays a strictly limited season at the Playhouse Theatre. The production runs from October 26th 2017 to February 3rd 2018, with an official press night on November 9th 2017.
