Otterbein University Presents Speed-the-Plow

October 18, 2013

Westerville, OH—Otterbein University Theatre presents the David Mamet play, Speed-the-Plow, at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 31, and 8 p.m. on Nov. 1-2 and Nov. 8-9 at the Campus Center Theatre, 100 W. Home St. Tickets cost $18. Call 614-823-1109 or visit www.otterbein.edu/drama.

It’s “Lights, camera, action!” as the Otterbein University Department of Theatre and Dance takes you to Hollywood in David Mamet’s 1988 drama, Speed-the-Plow. A true-to-life scenario of life’s rises and falls, this play follows Charlie Fox as he tries to navigate and negotiate through risky gambles, movie stars and a very persuasive temp. This morality play makes you think about the perils of success and what you would do to take part in “life’s contest” and make it to the “Big Time.”

The Campus Center Theatre will be reconfigured so that the show can be set in a complete round stage setting. Scenic Designer Stephanie Gerckens and Lighting Designer Dana White worked closely with Director David Caldwell to reconceive the space for this particular production.

Tickets for Speed-the-Plow are $18 each and can be reserved by calling the Otterbein University box office at (614) 823-1109 or purchased online at www.otterbein.edu/drama. The box office is open 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour prior to performances. Student Rush discounts are available one hour prior to curtain, pending ticket availability. The box office is located in Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St., Westerville.
