RED SPEEDO by Lucas Hnath at NYTW, Feb.-March 2016


by Lucas Hnath
directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz

New York Theatre Workshop


Hailed as "one of the brightest new voices of his generation" by The New York Times, Lucas Hnath (The Christians, A Public Reading...) makes his NYTW debut with RED SPEEDO, a muscular new play directed by NYTW Usual Suspect Lileana Blain-Cruz.

Set on the eve of the Olympic 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.

Through Hnath's signature dark wit and exacting language, RED SPEEDO is a captivating exploration of America's obsession with winning at all costs.
