Review from Beverly Curtis

This small theater company is big on acting skills. They took on a touch project with Glengarry-and pulled it off seamlessly. Can't wait for their next offering!

“Leads! Leads! Williamson! Send me out! Send me out!”

defunkt theatre opens its12th season with a boldy reimagined, mixed gender version of David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning portrait of salesmen scratching and clawing for success and survival in the cutthroat world of real estate. Drammy winning defunkt veterans Grace Carter and Lori Sue Hoffman return to the stage as Roma and Levene.

“I swear … it’s not a world of men … it’s not a world of men.”

How does the presence of both men and women affect this iconic play in which masculinity and success seem mutually dependent? Do women have to “act like men” to compete in traditionally male arenas? How do these characters cope with the added stress of a sales contest in which the losers will be fired? How far will they go to ensure that they come out on top?
