WITH all the profanity, yelling and exaggerated gestures in David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, audiences would be forgiven for thinking they were watching a production about something important. In fact, we’re seeing four greedy American real estate agents battle to keep their heads above water in a cut-throat industry. After a lackluster first half swamped by wordy scenes, Dominic Pedlar was outstanding as charismatic Richard Roma, while Justin Moore was suitably slimy as self-serving office manager John Williamson. Though cleverly staged in the tiny venue, sitting on hard floors wore thin.
