Meet the Cast of Speed-the-Plow: Jolly Abraham

Speed-the-Plow will be staged at Pavilion Theatre Thu 13 - Sat 15 Apr at Pavilion Theatre. With permission from David Mamet (Glengarry Glen Ross, Wag The Dog), Andy Crook directs this exciting, all new version of the classic Hollywood satire.

This re-imagining of David Mamet’s 1980s hit play turns the dynamic on its head as the genders of the protagonists are reversed. Starring Tara Egan-Langley as Bobby Gould, Jolly Abraham as Charlie Fox and Macleod Stephen as Kevin/Karen. We got to know each of the cast in advance of the show!

Next up, it’s Jolly…….
