Counter-Productions Theatre Company presents Speed-The-Plow by David Mamet
June 7th-16th Fridays & Saturdays at 7pm, Sundays at 2pm Theatre 82 | 82 Rolfe Square $18
David Mamet’s Speed-The-Plowis a satirical look at the competitive, sometimes hostile, world of the Hollywood movie mogul. The story revolves around Bobby Gould, a recently appointed head of production for a major movie studio. His right hand man, Charlie Fox, has an opportunity for them to make a sure fire, money-making action flick. Doug Brown, a major star, has committed to the project. The two men book a meeting with the head of the studio to pitch the idea, and all seems right with the world.
That is until Karen, a beautiful, enigmatic secretary in Gould’s office, gets involved. Bobby is determined to make time with Karen, while Charlie is convinced that she would never go for it. The gentlemen make a not so gentlemanly wager, and the madness ensues. How will Karen respond? What is she really after?
