More About Speed the Plow - Capitalism and Betrayal in Hollywood
Starring Mean Girls actress Lindsay Lohan with words from the well-worn pen of David Mamet (the writer famous for the quick-witted savagery of Pulitzer Prize winning plays like Glengarry Glen Ross), this brand new West End production was always destined to be one of the most talked-about shows of 2014. Taking up residency at the Playhouse Theatre, the play shines a light on Hollywood's stereotypical processes and the savagery of show business.
Following the exploits of recently promoted film producer Bobby Gould, the show traces his route to stardom as he desperately tries to prove himself as a big-shot exec. His business partner brings news that the silver screen wants to make a big budget movie, and it seems like the perfect opportunity for Gould to make a name for himself. However, whilst waiting to pitch their idea to the studio, the men are distracted by a hapless but attractive office temp (Lohan). Using her feminine wiles, the ambitious admin assistant persuades power-hungry Gould to forgo his business goals in favour of art and completely turns his world upside down. Having already garnered glittering reviews, now is the perfect time to grab Speed the Plow tickets on StubHub.
