Mamet’s Speed-The-Plow tonight at Vortex

A group of morally bankrupt 1980s Angelenos snort blow, fornicate and screw each other over. David Mamet’s Speed-The-Plow might as well have been written by Bret Easton Ellis. If you’re in the mood for a vice-filled Hollywood farce, The Vortex Theatre (2004 1/2 Cental SE) is staging Mamet’s play through May 20. Shows are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Click the above link to check out the Alibi’s review.

Performance Review

Amoral in L.A.

The Vortex lines up David Mamet’s soulless film industry farce

Speed-the-Plow is a play about the coke-addled, fortune-obsessed, power-crazed workings of late-’80s Hollywood, fortified with typical David Mamet misogynistic underpinnings. Also in true Mamet fashion, it’s a story in which all of the characters prove themselves despicable, some more than others. Yet Speed-the-Plow still manages to be light, frivolous fun.
