The New York Theatre Workshop production of Red Speedo by Lucas Hnath officially opens March 3. The young playwright, whose play The Christians recently had an acclaimed run at Playwrights Horizons, returns Off-Broadway with his newest work about America's obsession with winning.
Directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz, the cast features Broadway actors Alex Breaux (The Real Thing), Peter Jay Fernandez (All the Way) and Lucas Caleb Rooney (Golden Boy) as well as Zoë Winters (Love and Information).
“Set on the eve of the Olympics swim trials, pressure builds as front-runner Ray confronts the lure of endorsements, the perils of mixing the personal and professional, and the unforgiving weight of success,“ state production notes.
Previews began February 17 and the engagement is scheduled to run through March 27.
Tickets to Red Speedo are available online at NYTW.org or by calling (212) 460-5475.
