AUGUST 11 – SEPTEMBER 5, 2021
Red Speedo is part thriller, part comedy, and part indictment of a scorched-earth modern America in which winning is valued at all costs – even if it means losing.

SYNOPSIS

On the eve of Olympic qualifying trials, a champion swimmer’s future rests in the balance. If he makes the team he will sign a lucrative endorsement deal worth millions. But when performance-enhancing drugs are found in his team’s locker room fridge, he must tread water past the rumors to avoid losing it all. With rapid-fire dialogue that builds to an electrifying, twist-filled climax, Red Speedo will leave you breathless. From the acclaimed author of A Doll’s House Part 2 and The Christians.
