Filled with playwright David Mamet’s trademark intense rapid-fire dialogue and provocative themes, “Speed-the-Plow” focuses on the ruthless nature of the Hollywood movie industry. Directed by Artistic Director Grant McGowen, it’s a behind the scenes story of handshaking, dealbreaking, and backstabbing as only Pulitzer Prize winner Mamet can tell it.

“Hilarious and chilling.” – The New York Times
“Mamet’s clearest, wittiest play.” – The New York Daily News
