Some description

Ray’s swum his way to the eve of the Olympic trials. If he makes the team, he’ll get a deal with Speedo. If he gets a deal with Speedo, he’ll never need a real job. So when someone’s stash of performance-enhancing drugs is found in the locker room fridge, threatening the entire team’s Olympic fate, Ray has to crush the rumors or risk losing everything. A sharp and stylish play about swimming, survival of the fittest, and the American dream of a level playing field—or of leveling the field yourself.  

Studio Lab presents stripped-down productions of world premiere plays, giving playwrights in residence the ability to work in an environment of collaboration and discovery. 


A provocative world premiere…extremely relevant and accurately realized… a tight ensemble cast with a keen, professional, technical sheen.
