Director preparing stage adaptation of “Glengarry Glen Ross” for Fajr festival

TEHRAN, Aug. 13 (MNA) – Iranian director Masud Delkhah plans to stage an adaptation of “Glengarry Glen Ross”, David Mamet’s 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning play.

Entitled “The Land’s Dream”, the play will be performed during the Fajr International Theater Festival in Tehran in February 2014, Delkhah told the Persian service of MNA on Monday.

Some modifications will be made to the play and since the main focus of the play is real estate, an all-male cast will perform it, he added.

“To give a better performance, the members of the cast have done field research at some real estate agencies in Iran, he stated.

“Glengarry Glen Ross” shows parts of two days in the lives of four desperate Chicago real estate agents who are prepared to engage in any number of unethical, illegal acts—from lies and flattery to bribery, threats, intimidation and burglary—to sell undesirable real estate to unwitting prospective buyers.

Iranian theater actor/director Parsa Piruzfar staged American playwright David Mamet’s “Glengarry Glen Ross” at the Iranshahr Theater Complex in 2011. It was warmly received by theatergoers.
