GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS – AUDITION INFORMATION – THE PENNINGTON PLAYERS

GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS: David Mamet’s 1984 Pulitzer Prize winning play, “Glengarry Glen Ross”, is about the struggles of four shady small-time salesmen in a small branch of a larger real estate company located in Chicago. Taking place over two business days in the mid-80s, the play portrays the dog-eat-dog world of real estate and the ends ruthless salesmen will go to in order to sell overpriced and undesirable land to uninterested and reluctant potential buyers.
