This Pulitzer winning play by one of America’s premier dramatists paints a picture of survival in the real estate world of the 1980s, where greed is the flavor of the day and success comes at all costs.

The cast features Jim Johnston, Chris Patrick, Kevin O’Donnell, Harold Langsom, Michael Volpendesta, Bill LeSueur and Scott Dunn, directed by Hamner Theater Co-Artistic Director, Boomie Pedersen.

“A chillingly funny indictment of a world in which you are what you sell.” (Guardian)

Glengarry cast: a bunch of closers? by Andrew Cedermark, C-ville Weekly, 9/25/2009
“artfully choreographed language and forceful performances from a veteran cast…”

“Live Arts is drama location, location, location” by Claire Aukofer, Daily Progress, 9/25/2009
‘…Michael Volpendesta has one of the best scenes in the play as Roma, a top salesman and smooth talker who may articulate much of Mamet’s premise as he seduces a sale to a stranger.
All of the men in this show… deserve kudos.
Kevin O’Donnell gives a superb performance as Dave, a man’s man with big ideas. The difficult dialog seems as natural to him as mothers milk, and he is believable every moment.
Bill LeSueur also shines as the only customer among these smooth-talking salesmen — a milquetoast conned by Roma’s charm and, in the end, as desperate as the salesmen in his own way. His job is difficult, since he conveys his character with very little language.’
