Mitch and Murray Productions, a nine time Jessie-nominated theatre company, returns this year with another sizzling piece of theatre for Vancouver audiences.
When a hugely bankable star agrees to appear in a sure-fire commercial hit, film producers Bobby Gould (Craig Erickson) and Charlie Fox (Aaron Craven) are convinced this is the break of a lifetime. That is until Karen (Kayla Deorksen), a temporary secretary, derails the dream. When she persuades Bobby to dump the blockbuster in favour of a story which can only be described as box-office poison, Charlie is forced to resort to desperate measures
This brilliantly satirical portrayal of Hollywood is written by David Mamet, the foremost playwright of his generation and the author of Glengarry Glen Ross, Oleanna and American Buffalo. A high-octane modern classic, Speed-The-Plow is filled with Mamet’s trademark wit and scintillating dialogue.
Directed by David Mackay.
