Read an Interview with Meghan Grady

 David Mamet's quick-silver comedy about getting films green-lighted in Hollywood shows no need for botox or silicone. A masterwork skewering "the business" of making movies. Speed-the-Plow is a hilarious vivisection of jealousy, power-grabbing, and the American dream of material transformation. Starring Broadway veterans Danton Stone and Peter Birkenhead as moguls on the make, and up-and-coming star Meghan Grady as the temporary secretary with an agenda all her own. This play contains mature language. The play runs one hour and fifty minutes.
