Compelling black comedy about money, deceit, desperation and playing people off against each other

Toneelgroep Maastricht presents a contemporary adaptation of David Mamet's stage classic "Glengarry Glen Ross," a black comedy in which people struggle desperately for their jobs and livelihoods, in a world that revolves around money.

Toneelgroep Maastricht presents a contemporary adaptation of David Mamet's stage classic "Glengarry Glen Ross," a black comedy in which people struggle desperately for their jobs and livelihoods, in a world that revolves around money.

At real estate agency BV Vastgoed, the employees are subjected to a competition by the management. The two best salespeople get a bonus, the rest are fired. This creates a battle that only the strongest survive. In sharp, witty dialogue, Mamet paints a wistful portrait of people forced to be winners at the expense of others and stuck in a world they themselves helped create.

After the theatrical hits "August: Oklahoma" (2024) and "The Cherry Garden" (2023), Michel Sluysmans is once again directing a modern interpretation of a well-known theatrical classic. Mamet wrote his play in 1982, at the beginning of the neoliberal era. Over forty years later, that era is on its last legs. The play was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, received rave reviews and was successfully filmed in 1992.
