The UK Premiere of
THE GRÖNHOLM METHOD
By Jordi Galceran. Translated by Anne García-Romero and Mark St. Germain.
Set in the offices of a New York City Fortune 500 company, four unsuspecting candidates embark on the most testing job interview of their lives.
This taut play, premiered in Barcelona in 2003 to great critical acclaim, exposes the psychological depths people will go to in order to get what they want.
In our age of reality TV game shows and tweeting US Presidents, The Grönholm Method explores the human capacity to manipulate, lie and ‘play the game’ to get ahead in life.
