Event Details

Ray has swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll get a deal with Speedo. So when someone’s stash of performance-enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, threatening the entire team’s Olympic fate, Ray has to crush the rumors or risk losing everything. A sharp and stylish play about swimming, survival of the fittest, and the American dream of a level playing field—or of leveling the field yourself.

From the NY Times: "…[A] remarkable feat…a taut, incisive drama…[Hnath] has a wonderfully inventive theatrical mind. … The characters in RED SPEEDO are palpably, at times movingly, human in their complexity and weakness…but as the play gathers steam it broadens out to become a subtle indictment of the ethos that insists that winning is everything."

From the Director: RED SPEEDO explores not only the ethics of doping in sports, but more deeply the lengths we will go to battle our own fears and stigmas of failure, as well as how that can be inextricably linked to the most public commercial interests as well as the most private sense of self.
