David Mamet
Glengarry Glen Ross
Drama
The new SND building, Studio

The contemporary American author David Mamet placed his Glengarry Glen Ross into the setting of a real estate agency. It is the stage to play out the tough, harsh and, at times, even comical competition struggle among the staff who are selling even that which cannot be sold. Everyone wishes to climb the upper career echelons, ideally stepping on someone else’s back. Still, there is only one to be given the chance. As a staff incentive, the agency comes up with a competition to win a luxury car, a set of knives or, on the contrary a loss of job. That gives rise to all kinds of career scheming among the staff, which unveil unfair practices, shrewd tricks, as well as mutual betrayal. All this is part of the merciless struggle for survival. Characteristic humour, idiosyncratic language and brilliant dialogues merge in Glengarry Glen Ross with peculiar irony, effective metaphor and unremitting business world. A world is born where 'to have' is more important than 'to be'. Simply, our world! The play earned David Mamet Pulitzer Prize, and two Academy-nominated films based on the piece.

Florian Zeller
Mother
Drama
The new SND building, Studio

Anne lovingly looked after her husband, enjoyed preparing breakfast for her children and provided the full family service. Simply, she filled her life with her family, until she came to realise that she was actually alone. This serene life somewhat deceived her. Perhaps she was also deceived by her husband who is busy seminar-hopping. The son is now an adult and no longer needs his mother. How is she to come to terms with the fact that he, too, has his own life now? What to fill hers with? What is left once love is gone? Suddenly, Anne no longer has her place and a goal. The bitter comedy Mother is a family drama about coming of age, leaving and sudden self-awareness. Yet, it is also about fear of abandonment, loneliness, of an empty nest. The acclaimed French playwright Florian Zeller created a fascinating world of reality and illusion of a woman, a mother. What is a mother left with once her self-sacrifice on behalf of her family comes to an end, her children’s freedom and husband’s autonomy become reality? Ultimately, she merely raises the fundamental question: What was it all for? Actually, what was the point of it all?
