Product Description

By the author of The Christians, an honest and darkly comic play that may have you rethinking your stance on athletes who cheat.

Ray’s swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll get a deal with Speedo. If he gets a deal with Speedo, he’ll never need a real job. 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.

Praise for Red Speedo:

"Hnath is quickly emerging as one of the brightest new voices of his generation." -Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

Lucas Hnath is a resident playwright at New Dramatists and his plays have been produced or developed at Actors Theatre of Louisville, The Culture Project, Ontological-Hysteric Theater, Ensemble Studio Theatre, and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, among others.
