The Shotgun Cabaret: Women Read Glengarry Glen Ross
Think of Glengarry Glen Ross and the first thing that comes to mind is: Men, men, men, men, and more men. The infamous real estate hustlers of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross have long represented the American male as his worst: desperate, backstabbing, criminal, and rather skillful at seduction. This 1984 play is one of the most male-identified works in the repertoire, and Shotgun and First Person Singular will present it in all its furious, brass-balled glory -- with a female cast. Does the ruthless competition driving the play relate only to men, or has traditional casting denied this work its university?
