Los Angeles Production of Glengarry Glen Ross, produced, designed and directed by Nicholas Guilak

I have always been very fond of this play.  So when the opurtunity came to produce, design, direct and play a cameo part, I couldn't hesitate.  David Mamet writes with such intense precision and intention, it leaves you breathless.  He chooses his words like weapons and has his characters inspire, manipulate, entrap, give hope and ruthlessly take to survive in their cutthroat environment.  I found it interesting how and when the characters bring value to their words and at the same time take value away to benefit their ploy.  Mamet Suggests that for these men, success and failure rest in the meanings that get attached to meaningless words.

Glengarry Glen Ross is a scathing attack on American business practices.  The sales office of the play serves as a microcosm of capitalist culture: as the top man gets a Cadillac and the bottom man gets fired, every man must not only work for his own success but also hope for - or actively engineer- his coworkers' failure.

 
Success, then, is rewarded with further opportunity for success, while failure is punished with the guarantee of further failure. The system is brutal and compassionless.  Mamet uses this cruel occurrence to demonstrate how capitalism can foster greed.  I kept this production true to its original period, coming out of the seventies and into the early eighties.
