Glengarry, Glen Ross
by Sam Bass Theatre Association
Feb. 05 - Feb. 06
Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet's scalding comedy is about small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American dream. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action -- where closing a sale can mean a brand new Cadillac but losing one can mean losing it all.
Warning: This play contains mature themes, strong language, and profanity; for mature audiences only.

Shelly Levene - A washed-up real estate salesman in his fifties. Shelly "The Machine" Levene was successful years ago, but recently has hit a streak of "bad luck" and finds himself in danger of getting fired. He desperately wants to save his career, and this desperation is usually grotesquely apparent.
John Williamson - The manager of the real estate office, who is in his early forties. Williamson's job is to oversee the operations of the office and to assign the salesmen their leads. He believes he is mistreated by them and thus doesn't like them.
Dave Moss - An angry real estate salesman in his fifties. Moss harbors a great deal of resentment toward the company. He is not a subtle man, and tends to lash out angrily when under pressure. He is indignant against all of the salesmen.
George Aaronow - A timid real estate salesman in his fifties who is extremely meek and mild- mannered. In conversation, faster talkers like Moss and Roma easily overpower him. His dullness is evident in his conversational tendency to merely repeat what other people are saying to him.
Ricky Roma - A slick, smooth-talking real estate salesman in his early forties. Roma is currently the most successful salesman. It is easy to see why he does better than the other men: he is smart, charming, and incredibly quick-witted.
James Lingk - A quiet, timid man in his early forties, Lingk is a prospect that sits with Roma at the restaurant. Roma is able to sell the man based on Lingk's fears of never having done anything with his life.
Baylen - A police detective in his early forties who has come into the office in order to investigate the burglary and theft of sales leads. He interrogates the salesmen one by one in Williamson's office during the play.
