Photo Flash: RLTP Presents David Mamet's SPEED-THE-PLOW
Road Less Traveled Productions (RLTP) is excited to announce its first production of its 2018/19 season in its new home at 456 Main Street! The 2018/19 season will open October 26th with Tony Award-nominated Speed-the-Plow by David Mamet starring Matt Witten, Kevin Kennedy and Laura Barrierie under the direction of RLTP Artistic Director Scott Behrend. The production team includes Dyan Burlingame (set design), John Rickus (light design), Maura A. Simmonds-Price (costume design/props), and Katie Menke (sound design).
Synopsis: Bobby Gould is the newly minted Head of Production at a major Hollywood studio and needs a surefire success right out of the gate if he wants to keep his job. Two proposals land quickly in his lap. The first is a low-brow and racially insensitive action flick backed up by high-powered movie star wattage... in other words, it can't miss. The second is an intellectually challenging, philosophically progressive, deeply important literary adaptation... obviously, a guaranteed box office bomb. Will Bobby's alluring new secretary manage to convince him to do what might be the right thing, or will his longtime frenemy Charlie Fox return Bobby to the brimstone path? Mamet's rapid-fire comedy/drama pits Money vs. Art, Comfort vs. Courage, and Lady vs. Tiger.
