Photo Flash: First Look - Epic Theatre Makes a Splash with Site-Specific RED SPEEDO

Epic Theatre Company presents the theatrical event of the year with Lucas Hnath's brilliant look at masculinity and athleticism, RED SPEEDO, arriving in New England in a visceral site-specific production that cannot be missed. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

In "Red Speedo," Ray is a talented swimmer on the verge of making it to the Olympics. A slot in the games would mean an endorsement deal with Speedo, and the chance to be set for life. But when performance-enhancing drugs are found in the locker room, Ray's dream -- and his talent -- are called into question.

"We've been building up to this production for months," says Artistic Director Kevin Broccoli, "The Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket have graciously allowed us to use their incredible indoor pool at their beautiful new facility. We believe the addition of a site-specific location has really catapulted this show into being the theatrical event of the season."

Vince Petronio directs a cast that includes Gunnar Manchester, Christopher Crider-Plonka, Emma Sacchetti, and Jay Are Adams.

"Red Speedo" by Lucas Hnath runs October 27th - November 11th at the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket at the indoor pool. A portion of the proceeds from the show will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Pawtucket. Tickets can be purchased here.
