Featuring the school’s intermediate level students, this is the play for which Mamet won the Pulitzer Prize in 1984. During two days in the lives of four desperate Chicago real estate agents, we witness lies and flattery, bribery, threats, intimidation and burglary —all to sell undesirable real estate to unwitting prospective buyers. Based on Mamet’s own experience of working in a similar office, it has enjoyed countless West End, Broadway and international seasons and inspired a brilliant film adaptation whose cast included Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin and Kevin Spacey.
In this showcase production, director – and Actors Pulse principal – Billy Milionis flips the genders of many characters to fully showcase the range and craft of his talented cast.
This production features Actors Pulse students Katherine Munro, Tony Barea, Claire Brew, Rebecca Leedham, Livio Di Michiel, Casey Richards and Dean Tuttle; with stage design and construction by Ali Maack and lighting by Kennedy Lee.
Act 1 takes place at Moya’s Juniper Lounge gin bar at 101 Regent Street before moving next door to the Actors Pulse studio theatre at 103 Regent Street for Act 2.
The price of admission includes a beverage at the bar!
Tickets $29.50 ($21.50 for Feb 22 preview)
