Red Speedo

A Philadelphia Premiere

by Lucas Hnath

Directed by Deborah Block


Featuring Keith Conallen, Leonard C. Haas, Jaylene Clark Owens and Brian Ratcliffe


The discovery of a cooler full of performance-enhancing drugs sends Olympic hopeful Ray and those who circle around him into murky waters in this spare, pool-side drama. This taut darkly comic, new play explores the battle between building a family and the business of winning at any cost.
