Red Speedo – Orange Tree Theatre

13 July  - 10 Aug 2024

This – what you’ve done – has nothing to do with luck.

Ray lives to swim. He is within touching distance of international glory and a life-changing sponsorship deal. But everything changes when performance-enhancing drugs are discovered in the club’s refrigerator. As tensions run high, Ray’s brother wants them destroyed, his coach wants to call the authorities, his ex-girlfriend doesn’t want to know, and Ray wants the drugs back.

A thriller played at the breakneck pace of an Olympic sprint, Red Speedo tackles the unforgiving weight of success in a world where the only crime is getting caught.

The UK premiere of Red Speedo is directed by Matthew Dunster (The Pillowman, 2:22 A Ghost Story) and stars Finn Cole, best known for his role as Michael Gray in Peaky Blinders, alongside Fraser James, Parker Lapaine and Ciarán Owens.

Lucas Hnath is one of America’s most exciting new playwrights, whose Tony Award nominated A Doll’s House Part 2 was seen at the Donmar Warehouse.

“Formal rigour, propulsive momentum, the sense that there’s a lot happening beneath the surface” The Guardian on Red Speedo
