What happens if you introduce women into David Mamet’s hyper-macho world of rapacious, desperate real estate salesmen? Judging by Adam Webster’s staging for Redtwist Theatre—in which the pronouns stay the same but women play some roles—the answer is, Nothing special. If the underlying motive behind the gender-bending in this otherwise well-paced, entertaining production is to show that women can be as ruthless as their male counterparts, that point’s been made many times before.
