Closed February 22, 2009

Why See Speed The Plow?

Speed-the-Plow is David Mamet’s scathing portrait of the film industry and the people who are willing to sell their souls for sex, fame and fortune.

Sex and money battle for blood in the 20th anniversary revival of Speed-the-Plow, David Mamet's classic skewering of Hollywood power brokers. Jeremy Piven ("Entourage") and Raul Esparza (Company) play two film producers hungry to impress the Studio Head with the next big blockbuster.

Cut to a sexy new secretary (Elisabeth Moss, "Mad Men"), armed with a plan to tear them apart.
