Friday, Saturday, Feb. 20-21, 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, Feb. 22, 3 p.m.
David Mamet's scorching play about a group of desperate salesmen in a Chicago real estate office. When a contest pits the men against each other, they resort to manipulation, bribery and even theft to keep their jobs. The Darwinian struggle that ensues is a stinging indictment of a culture that rewards the strong, punishes the weak and values success above all else. One of the most influential plays of the 20th century, Glengarry Glen Ross shows Mamet at the height of his literary and dramatic powers. SAU Theatre Department production. Contains graphic language.
