David Mamet is the author of some of the best-known and most important plays in American theatre, such as American Buffalo, Oleanna and Speed-the-Plow. Throughout his work he has proven himself a master at scripting stories filled with deception, crime and plot-twists. And tying it all together is dialogue written with an acute ear for language and its use in scrabbling for power. As Ben Brantley wrote in the New York Times, “Mr. Mamet hears American scheming with an exactitude and delight still unsurpassed by any other dramatist.”

Glengarry Glen Ross, winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, is Mamet at the top of his game. The Times’ Frank Rich writes, “…Crackling tension…ferocious comedy and drama. A top American playwright in bristling form.”
