Golden Globe winner Christian Slater, seen on the London stage in Swimming with Sharks and on Broadway opposite Jessica Lange in The Glass Menagerie, will play Ricky Roma in a West End revival of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross this fall.
Sam Yates will direct the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, which will play October 26–February 3, 2018, at the Playhouse Theatre.
Slater will be joined by Robert Glenister (Hustle, Spooks) as Dave Moss, Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise) as John Williamson, Stanley Townsend (Girl from the North Country) as Shelley Levene, and Don Warrington (Death in Paradise) as George Aaronow: the other members of the deal-chasing, cut-throat sales team.
Glengarry Glen Ross made its world premiere at the National Theatre in 1983, earning the Olivier Award for Best Play; the 1984 Broadway premiere garnered multiple Tony Award nominations (and a win for actor Joe Mantegna) and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In 1992, the play was adapted by Mamet into an Academy Award-nominated film featuring Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, Kevin Spacey, and Jonathan Pryce.
Glengarry Glen Ross is produced by ATG Productions, Act Productions and Glass Half Full Productions.
