Synopsis: David Mamet's 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross, follows the lives of four unethical Chicago real estate agents who are prepared to go to any lengths (legal or illegal) to unload undesirable real estate on unwilling prospective buyers.

Character Breakdown:

  • Ricky Roma (Salesman, 40s) Suave, successful, devious and out for himself.
  • Shelly Levine (Salesman, 50s/60s) Sinking desperately in tragic quicksand, his boastfulness will lead to humiliation.
  • John Williamson (Manager, 30s/40s) Without real sales experience, apparently a company man—but nevertheless willing to scam in his own interest.
  • Dave Moss (Salesman, 50s) Tough, crude and too bitter to play well the hand he’s been dealt.
  • George Aronow (Salesman, 50s) Frustrated and meek, depressed but accepting, he is needy—but still has common sense.
  • James Lingk (married, 30s/40s) We meet him drinking alone. Sensitive, malleable to others and deeply flawed.
  • Detective Baylen (Police Officer, 40s) Experienced, no-nonsense cop. Strong—will use force when needed.
