‘Speed the Plow’ will be staged Thursday 6th – Sat 8th April at The Civic.  With permission from David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, Wag The Dog), Andy Crook directs this exciting, all new version of the classic Hollywood satire.

This re-imagining of David Mamet’s 1980s hit play turns the dynamic on its head as the genders of the protagonists are reversed.

Starring Tara Egan-Langley as Bobby Gould, Jolly Abraham as Charlie Fox and Macleod Stephen as Kevin/Karen. We got to know each of the cast in advance of the show!

Next up, it’s Jolly…….
