Glengarry Glen Ross follows the cutthroat world of real estate where salesmen are vying for the best leads to make the biggest sales. The play was produced on Broadway in 1984 under the direction of Gregory Mosher following London and Chicago runs. The drama earned playwright Mamet the Pulitzer Prize and Best Play Tony Award nomination that year and was later adapted by the scribe for the 1992 film.
