“A taut, incisive drama…[from] a wonderfully inventive theatrical mind…” – The New York Times
Opening on Friday, January 28 through Saturday, February 12, 2022
(Newport, KY) — Falcon Theatre is pleased to announce another regional theatrical premiere as the next show in the 2021-2022 season, Lucan Hnath’s play RED SPEEDO.
Ray has swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll get a deal with Speedo. If he gets a deal with Speedo, he’ll never need a real job. So, when someone’s stash of performance-enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, threatening the entire team’s Olympic fate, Ray has to crush the rumors or risk losing everything. RED SPEEDO is a sharp and stylish play about swimming, survival of the fittest, and the American dream of a level playing field—or of leveling the field yourself.
Hailed as “…one of the brightest new voices of his generation…” by The New York Times, Lucas Hnath (A Doll’s House, Part 2, The Christians) raises hugely important questions about our society and the occasionally perverse behavior it encourages. Falcon veteran Tara Williams directs this muscular new play featuring an outstanding cast that includes Nik Pajic, Jared Earland, Rory Sheridan, and Anna Hazard.
Performances are on January 28, 29 and February 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 2022. All performances are at 8:00 PM EST. Tickets prices are $25 for adults and $15 for students with ID. Patrons enjoy a $5 discount for Thursday performances. Visit falcontheater.net to reserve seats.
