After ‘sealing the deal’ with critics and audiences alike during its smash hit West End run, Sam Yates’ unmissable production of one of David Mamet’s greatest and most lauded plays, Glengarry Glen Ross will embark on a nationwide tour from 14 February 2019 opening at the New Victoria Theatre, Woking. The hard-nosed sales team in this darkly funny classic will then visit BirminghamManchesterMilton KeynesGlasgowRichmondBrighton and Cardiff with further tour dates to be announced shortly.

Lies. Greed. Corruption. It’s business as usual. 

Set in an office of cut-throat Chicago salesmen. Pitched in a high-stakes competition against each other, four increasingly desperate employees will do anything, legal or otherwise, to sell the most real estate. As time and luck start to run out, the mantra is simple: close the deal and you've won a Cadillac; blow the lead and you're f****d.
