‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ back at M.T. Pockets

MORGANTOWN — David Mamet’s 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Glengarry Glen Ross” will continue this weekend with performances at 8 p.m. March 22-24 at M.T. Pockets Theatre.
This dark comedy rips away the veil from the modern salesman. Watch as Ricky Roma, Shelley Levene and their office mates peddle Florida’s “finest” real estate to unsuspecting clients. Mamet’s lacerating satire shows how these salesmen are desperately struggling to keep to the ABC’s: Always Be Closing.
The M.T. Pockets’ production features Justin Grow as the relentless and big-mouthed Dave Moss, Thomas Ian Lyall as the resigned and self-doubting George Aaronow, Rion Hammond as police detective Baylen, Sean Bonnette as the formerly successful real estate star Shelly “The Machine” Levene, Jonathan Lazzell as the timid client James Lingk, Jonathan Tyler Grady as the ruthless-yet-successful Richard “Ricky” Roma and Jeremy Blizard as the stoic office manager John Williamson.
“Glengarry Glen Ross” is intended for mature audiences and contains mature language.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors/military and $10 for students. Tickets are available online at Reservations can be made by calling 304-284-0049 and leaving a message. Tickets can be purchased at the door when seating is available.
