Speed the Plow

David Mamet

Mamets witty, caustic play filled with his trademark rapid-fire dialogue satirises the deal making that goes on behind-the-scenes in the movie business.

Hollywood producers Bobby Gould (Jeff Goldblum) and Charlie Fox (Kevin Spacey) engage in a verbal boxing match centred around the eternal debate of art versus money. Should Gould go for another bad blockbuster that will make his fortune or put himself on the line for an adaptation of a spiritual, apocalyptic novel offered to him by his beautiful secretary, Karen (Laura Michelle Kelly). In this tale of greed, seduction and power, everything he believes will be put to the test.

David Mamets other plays include Glengarry Glen Ross, Oleanna and American Buffalo. Kevin Spacey appeared in Glengarry Glen Ross on Film and recently at The Old Vic in A Moon for the Misbegotten and Richard II.
