This is how it goes

Close the deal and you’ve won a Cadillac. Blow the lead and… Christian Slater returns to the West End. He plays the smooth-talking sales shark Ricky Roma in this exciting revival of David Mamet’s classic play Glengarry Glen Ross. Lies, greed, corruption.  It’s all business as usual.  Glengarry Glen Ross takes place in the office of a group of cut-throat Chicago salesmen, willing to go to any lengths to get sales, legal or not.

David Mamet’s acclaimed masterpiece receives its first major revival in over a decade. It is directed by Sam Yates. The play returns to the West End for the first time since the 2008 production at the Apollo Theatre.
