How far would you go to get what you want?
Award-winning playwright, Lucas Hnath, brings you an edge-of-your-seat drama about a family torn apart by ambition, drugs and the taste of superstardom.
Ray is a lean, mean swimming machine. But when performance-enhancing drugs are discovered in the locker room, he is implicated in a scandal that could destroy his dreams and tear his family apart.
'A taut, incisive drama about a swimmer with high Olympic hopes and a waterlogged ethical compass.' - The New York Times
Hailed as one of the brightest new voices of his generation, Lucas Hnath dissects the American Dream with a precision and passion not seen since David Mamet. Here, the desperate race for success is won by fractions of a second, and the clock is counting. Through an ever-spiralling series of reversals, betrayals, compromises and threats, tensions escalate to an explosive climax and blood-red confrontation with the truth.
Thrilling, dark and dangerous, Red Speedo transforms one man’s near-naked ambition into a parable for a modern age obsessed with sex, sport and celebrity, where virtue has no value and the only crime is getting caught.
