With permission from David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, Hannibal), Andy Crook directs this exciting, all new version of the classic satire Speed The Plow which hits theatres nationwide from 6th -27th April , starring Jolly Abraham, Tara Egan Langley and Macleod Stephen

This re-imagining of David Mamet’s 1980s hit play turns the dynamic on its head as the genders of the protagonists are reversed. Set in Hollywood where power is everything and morals are a commodity to be bought and sold, this production will examine the hierarchy from an alternative perspective. With two females as the movie executives and a younger male, the plot is given an entirely different context. 

Speed The Plow has been performed by such luminaries as William H Macy, Jeff Goldblum, Joe Mantegna, Elizabeth Moss, Lindsay Lohan and is notable for marking Madonna’s stage debut. 

  • Civic Theatre, Tallaght 6th – 8th April
  • Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire 13th – 15th April
  • Ramor Theatre, Cavan  26th April
  • Droichead Arts Centre 27th April

THIS PRODUCTION IS SUPPORTED BY THE ARTS COUNCIL
