Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet's scalding comedy is about small-time, cutthroat real esate 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. This masterpiece of American drama is now a major motion picture starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Alex Baldwain, Jonathan Pryce, Ed Harris, and Kevin Spacey.

From Our Editors

Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize for drama, David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross is a vindictive take on the American Dream gone rancid. From the confines of a real-estate office, four salesmen connive, undermine, dog and cheat each other in fleeting attempts to take the lead in the office sales race. It's a dog-eat-dog scenario, with the best winning a Cadillac, the next receiving steak knives and the rest getting fired. By exposing the will to survive in such inhuman hyper-corporate circumstances, Glengarry Glen Ross sends a chilling message about what's wrong with the survival of the fittest motif.
