Lies. Greed. Corruption. It’s business as usual. After its sell-out run in the West End wowing critics and audiences alike, this darkly funny production of Glengarry Glen Ross is touring the UK.

They join the previously announced Mark Benton (Shelly ‘The Machine’ Levene) and Nigel Harman (Ricky Roma).

Set in an office of cut-throat Chicago salesmen. Pitched in a high-stakes competition against each other, four increasingly desperate employees will do anything, legal or otherwise, to sell the most real estate. As time and luck start to run out, the mantra is simple: close the deal and you've won a Cadillac; blow the lead and you're ....

Broadcast live from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.

But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

Tickets: non-members £13.50, members £12.50, 18 & under £8 available from the Tourist Information Centre or via the web site.
