Directed by Sam Yates, the Robin Hood Prince of Thieves actor will appear alongside Robert Glenister (Hustle, Spooks), Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise, Love Actually, My Family), Stanley Townsend (Girl from the North Country, The Nether) and Don Warrington (Death in Paradise, Rising Damp) in the new production of David Mamet’s play.

Lies. Greed. Corruption. It’s business as usual.

Set in an office of cut-throat Chicago salesmen. Pitched in a high-stakes competition against each other, four increasingly desperate employees will do anything, legal or otherwise, to sell the most real estate. As time and luck start to run out, the mantra is simple: close the deal and you’ve won a Cadillac; blow the lead and you’re f****d.

Running for a limited 14 week run at the Playhouse Theatre, Glengarry Glen Ross has won a number of awards since it first premiered at the National Theatre in 1983. On its premiere in London, it went on to win the Olivier Award for Best Play, whilst its 1984 Broadway premiere garnered multiple Tony Award nominations and just a year later, it won the Pulitzer Award for Drama.

Glengarry Glen Ross was transformed for cinema audiences in 1992, starring Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, Kevin Spacey and Jonathan Pryce, going on to be nominated at the Academy Awards.

The play was last performed in London in 2007 at the Apollo Theatre, starring Jonathan Pryce, Aidan Gillen, Paul Freeman, Matthew Marsh, Anthony Flanagan, Tom Smith, Shane Attwooll.

Glengarry Glen Ross will play at the Playhouse Theatre from the 26th October until the 3rd February 2018. To book tickets visit ATG Tickets,, Discount, Last, See, Theatre, Theatre Tickets, Love and UK
