Don’t miss “Speed-The-Plow” by David Mamet, our featured show for 2014. This high octane play brilliantly satirizes Hollywood’s chasm between business and art as two powerful producers debate whether to produce a spiritual novel or a surefire blockbuster. When a young female temp enters the fray, the play explodes into a ripping tale of sex, power and morality.
Director David Mackay returns for a third straight year with the company, after directing our hit show “Becky Shaw” last season. Actors Craig Erickson and Aaron Craven ( from our production of Mamet’s “Race”, 2012 ) return. We’re proud to welcome Kayla Deorksen, who rounds out the three person cast of “Speed-The-Plow”.
