Glengarry Glen Ross festival entry

The Pulitzer Prize-winning and Tony Award-winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross, is coming to the Williams Lake Studio Theatre stage.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning and Tony Award-winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross,  is coming to the Williams Lake Studio Theatre stage this month.

Revolving around four desperate real estate salesmen in 1980s era Chicago, Glengarry Glen Ross follows the triumphs and debacles of its characters as they drag each other through deception, betrayal, catastrophe…and a burglary.

There’s nothing these real estate sharks won’t do to close a deal.

Shane Tollefson is directing and has chosen a stellar cast: Dennis Hawkins-Bogle as Richard “Ricky” Roma; Christopher Hutton as John Williamson; Randy Morgan as Dave Moss; Michael Rawluk as Shelly “The Machine” Levene; Colin Sandford as Detective Baylen; Craig Smith as James Lingk; and Curt Sprickeroff as George Aaronow.

When asked what drew him to Glengarry Glen Ross, Tollefson says in the theatre announcement of the new play.

“I first read Glengarry Glen Ross when I was 20 and was captured by its complex, lighting-quick and often vitriolic dialogue,” Tollefson says.

“The play showcases the extremes men can go to in a competitive environment when they become desperate.

“The interactions between the characters range from poignant to shocking and are sure to keep an audience on the edge of its seat.”

Be sure not to miss the show when Glengarry Glen Ross runs from Jan. 29 to Feb. 1, and Feb. 5 to 8. Glengarry Glen Ross will be one of the Studio Theatre’s representatives at the Central Interior Zone Festival in May.

This production has a strong language warning.
