Belfry Theatre opens its 40th anniversary season with Speed-the-Plow

From September 15 to October 11, the Belfry Theatre will open its 40th Anniversary season with David Mamet’s scathing comedy, Speed-the-Plow. Directed by Belfry Artistic Director Michael Shamata, Speed-the-Plow stars Vincent Gale (from last season’s hit production of Venus in Fur), Brian Markinson (from TV’s Mad Men) and Celine Stubel (Venus in Fur).

Hollywood producer Bobby Gould has just been handed a sure-fire hit – a blockbuster – that could catapult him and his old friend Charlie Fox into the big money. Or, he could make the “important” art house flick that his oh-so-attractive office temp is urging him to do. A savagely funny exposé of Hollywood and the male psyche.

No stranger to Hollywood, David Mamet wrote the screenplays for Wag The Dog and State And Main, (both about the film business) as well as Ronin, The Verdict, The Untouchables, Hannibal, Hoffa and Glengarry Glen Ross, among many others. His play, Sexual Perversity in Chicago, has been made into a movie twice, About Last Night (in 1982 and 2014). This past April it was announced that Speed-the-Plow is headed for the big screen with Mamet himself adapting the screenplay.
