Glengarry Glen Ross Director’s Notes

Glengarry Glen Ross is a masculine play examining the way men relate to one another, score points, buoy each other up, sacrifice each other to get ahead, and how they express both disappointment and success. By casting women in these male roles we seek both to examine the nature of men’s relationships and to fit them into a broader dialogue on masculinity and femininity as divorced from male and female. Glengarry Glen Ross is a period piece, belonging firmly in the eighties, but our vision of the piece provokes an examination that is still relevant today: how do men mask their true intentions and emotions? What do male relationships look like through a new lens?  What do these exchanges become in the minds, hearts, and mouths of women?

We invite you to help us to find out.
