Book Speed the Plow Tickets at the Old Vic Theatre, London

About Speed the Plow


Mamet's 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 (Kevin Spacey) and Charlie Fox engage in a verbal boxing match centered around the eternal debate of art versus money. Should Gould put on 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? In this tale of greed, seduction and power, everything he believes in will be put to the test.

'Of all American playwrights, Mamet remains the shrewdest observer of the evil that men do unto each other in the name of buddyhood' Time

David Mamet's 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.
