Winner of the 1984 Pulitzer Prize, David Mamet's scalding comedy is about small-time, cutthroat real esate salesmen trying to grind out a living by pushing plots of land on reluctant buyers in a never-ending scramble for their fair share of the American dream. Here is Mamet at his very best, writing with brutal power about the tough life of tough characters who cajole, connive, wheedle, and wheel and deal for a piece of the action -- where closing a sale can mean a brand new cadillac but losing one can mean losing it all. This masterpiece of American drama is now a major motion picture starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin, Alex Baldwain, Jonathan Pryce, Ed Harris, and Kevin Spacey.
The 12 original and two classic essays offer a dialectic on performance and structure, and substantially advance our knowledge of this seminal playwright.

It is difficult for an actor to perform in David Mamet's plays, because of the little physical action in the play. With this study, the dissertant intended to unpack the "action" in Mamet's plays and to conceive a better understanding of just how he creates conflict. Mamet's plays often contain very little physical (external) action and he uses language to drive the scenes and create dramatic conflict. His particular use of language, such as its construction, the use of vernacular (reproducing speech patterns of different social groups) and vulgarities and obscenities, has created controversy, but it has also earned him praise as a dramatist. By applying textual analysis to Glengarry Glen Ross and Oleanna I investigated Mamet's use of language and power play to create conflict and drive the action. Amongst other features, I analysed the structure, themes, characters, plot and language of these plays. Through the analysis it was discovered that, in both plays, language creates conflict. In Glengarry Glen Ross this is embodied in verbal abuse and in Oleanna through confusion and power. This conflict creates action that ultimately drives the plays towards their respective climaxes. As discovered, the characters and their relationships play a pivotal part in creating action. The character with more power dominates verbally and this too creates action and conflict.
