Roy has swam his way to the Olympic tryouts. If he makes the team, he’ll get a deal with Speedo. If he gets that deal, he’ll have achieved his personal best. When a stash of performance enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, Ray has to crush the rumors or risk losing everything. A sharp, stylish comedy drama, from the author of A DOLL’S HOUSE PART 2, THE THIN PLACE, HILARY AND CLINTON, and THE CHRISTIANS, among others. RED SPEEDO is a provocative play about swimming and the American Dream of a level playing field.
