Description

Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet's scalding comedy is about small-time, cutthroat real esate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American dream. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action -- where closing a sale can mean a brand new cadillac but losing one can mean losing it all. This masterpiece of American drama is now a major motion picture starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Alex Baldwain, Jonathan Pryce, Ed Harris, and Kevin Spacey.

Reviews

"The best new American play of the season. Wonderfully funny...a play to see, remember and cherish." -Clive Barnes, New York Post

"The most exciting American play in years." -Howard Kissel, Women's Wear Daily

"One of his best plays. Crackling tension...ferocious comedy and drama. A top American playwright in bristling form." -Frank Rich, The New York Times
