Or, add your own... If you want to grab something to eat before a 7:30 show, go to the Beehive just a couple of doors up Tremont. Great mussels in Tuscan broth!

Description

Examine the inner workings of a small real estate firm under a job-threatening sales contest. Drawing from current economic turmoil, the Independent Drama Society revives David Mamet’s classic examination of working life and how a harsh economy drives good people to desperate action. Mamet’s Tony Award-nominated and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is one that the Washington Post claims “everyone should see.”

Best known as a playwright, Mamet has won a Pulitzer Prize, and Tony nominations for Glengarry Glen Ross (1984) and _Speed-the-Plow _(1988). As a screenwriter, he received Oscar nominations for _The Verdict _(1982) and _Wag the Dog _(1997). Mamet’s books include _The Old Religion _(1997), a novel about the lynching of Leo Frank; Five Cities of Refuge: Weekly Reflections on Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy (2004), a Torah commentary, with Rabbi Lawrence Kushner; _The Wicked Son _(2006), a study of Jewish self-hatred and antisemitism; and Bambi vs. Godzilla, a commentary on the movie business.

“It is a privilege to work on this dynamite play,” says director Brett Marks. “The conflict between different generations of salesmen, pitted against each other in a sales competition, speaks easily to the greed still inherent in our American culture. We’re incredibly fortunate to have a top-rate group of actors, designers, and staff working on this production. Frankly, I’m excited just to be in the room.”

The Independent Drama Society production features Jeremy Browne (Williamson), Michael Fisher (Roma), Adam Lauver (Baylen), Bob Mussett (Lingk), Michael Pevzner (Aaronow), Bill Stambaugh (Moss), and Phil Thompson (Levene).
