Glengarry Glen Ross Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. Does every person have their price? Is there some point when even the best of us will betray others for our own gain?
  2. Glengarry Glen Ross features a cast of all male characters. Could you stage this show starring only women?
  3. Why do you think Mamet chooses not to ever go into much detail about the properties the characters in the play are trying to sell?
  4. What are some techniques Mamet uses to try to evoke sympathy for characters that could be seen as morally bankrupt?
  5. What would you have done if you were in Levene's situation?
  6. What separates Levene from Aaronow? Why does Levene accept Moss's offer, while Aaronow ultimately refuses it?
  7. Are our current actions dictated by choices we made in the past?
  8. Why do the men in the office view Williamson differently than they view each other?
