Lucas Hnath's new play begins performances next month.
New York Theatre Workshop has announced full casting for Red Speedo, written by Lucas Hnath (The Christians) and directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz (Hollow Gates). Performances begin February 17 in advance of a March 3 opening, and will run through March 27.
Set on the eve of the Olympics 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. The story offers an exploration of America's obsession with winning at all costs.
The cast of Red Speedo features Alex Breaux (The Real Thing), Peter Jay Fernandez (All the Way), Lucas Caleb Rooney (Golden Boy), and Zoë Winters (Love and Information).
The creative teams includes scenic design by Riccardo Hernandez, costume design by Montana Blanco, lighting design by Yi Zhao, sound design by Matt Tierney, and fight direction by Thomas Schall.
