Playwrights with Mark Schenker: 'Glengarry Glen Ross' by David Mamet
Glengarry Glen Ross is the story of four Chicago salesmen—Levene, Roma, Moss, and Aaronow—and their supervisor, Williamson, who work together selling undesirable real estate at inflated prices. The play takes place at the end of a month in which the bosses of the company, Mitch and Murray, have declared a "sales contest": The salesman who clears a certain high dollar amount will win a Cadillac, and the two salesmen who perform worst will be fired. A chalkboard is used to keep track of each man's sales. Roma, who makes good sales, is the top man on the board, but the other three are all having trouble and getting increasingly worried.

David Mamet was born in Chicago in 1947. He attended Goddard College in Vermont, and there discovered his passion for theater. He trained as an actor under the famed acting teacher Sanford Meisner, whose emphasis on practical, outward techniques—rather than "method" internalization—influenced Mamet's philosophy of acting as well as his writing. After college, Mamet held a number of unglamorous jobs: he drove a taxi, cleaned offices, and worked at a truck factory and a canning plant. In 1969 he got a job as an office manager at a real estate sales office. The position was the inspiration for Williamson's job in Glengarry Glen Ross, and the other salesmen Mamet observed in the office would later serve as the basis for the play's other characters.
