‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ next at Circle Players


Circle Players will present “Glengarry Glen Ross,” a scalding comedy by David Mamet. The play won the 1984 Pulitzer Prize and was nominated for four Tony Awards.

Small-time, cutthroat real estate salesmen try to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American Dream.

Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action -- where closing a sale can mean a brand new Cadillac but losing one can mean losing it all.

The play is directed by John Dowgin and produced by Faith Dowgin, both from Spotswood.

Appearing in the cast are Kevin C. Carr, Union City; Bob Chiavaroli, Somerset; Michael Ferentinos, Cranford; Todd W. Jones, Cranford; Mike King, New Providence; Rob Nissen, New Providence; and Kirk White, Scotch Plains.

Performances run 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, April 17-May 2; with one 3 p.m. matinee on Sunday, May 3.

The audience is invited to a wine and cheese reception in the lobby following the opening night performance.

The theater is located at 416 Victoria Ave., Piscataway. Because of the unique layout of the theater, latecomers cannot be seated once the performance has started. Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before curtain.

For reservations, call (732) 968-7555, or buy tickets online at Tickets are $18 for adults and $17 for students and seniors. Sorry, no credit cards may be used at the box office, but will be accepted online.
