Shelton Theater present's David Mamet's 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross, which follows the lives of four real estate salesman who viciously struggle for money, power, and the American dream.
Considered a masterpiece of poetic theatrical language, Glengarry Glen Ross is a cunning, chilling and comedic tale of the dark underbelly of the American dream. In Mamet's own words; "To me the play is about a society with only one bottom line; How much money you make."
Now considered an American classic, thirty years later Glengarry Glen Ross continues to inspire audiences worldwide as we witness men struggling and competing for survival in an economic system that is inherently violent.
Compared to Miller's Death of a Salesman (1949), Glengarry Glen Ross (1984) still resonates a cautionary morality tale about the behavior of desperate men in a capitalistic system. The play is immediately, funny, cold, vicious, and true.

From iconoclastic playwright Caryl Churchill (Cloud Nine, Top Girls) comes Love and Information, an acclaimed new play that features 57 brief yet memorable scenes that make up a world where data inspires obsession, and FaceTime conversations and celebrity selfies threaten to replace human contact IRL. Premiering as the inaugural production at A.C.T.'s new Strand Theater—located in the heart of San Francisco's tech community—this sharp yet tender theatrical kaleidoscope plays out like a fragmented newsfeed of moments, examining "our civilization's lust for information, our inability to process it, and our loss of secrecy and privacy" (Gothamist.com). Churchill challenges audiences to consider the fateful, intimate dance between the virtual and the real, and the ways we filter data in the Information Age. In this provocative and fast-paced world of mysterious conversations, populated by 140 characters hungry for understanding, Churchill reminds us that no matter what the latest gadgets and hottest Internet memes are, the primary currency of choice will always be connection.

The men are in for a surprise when the women take charge of seduction.
