Football Plays

Football Plays

One might think that “drama geeks” and “football jocks” don’t mix. But if I learned anything from watching High School Musical with my kids (over and over again) it was this: the realms of theater and sports can co-exist, even thrive.

Case in point:

Runt of the Litter. This one-man drama, written by former NFL star Bo Eason, focuses on the intense nature of professional football. The play takes place in a locker room, the hour before Jack Henry heads out to complete his lifelong dream of winning the Superbowl. The catch: His brother is playing on the opposing team.

Football dominates these other stage plays too:

Time Out for Ginger by Ronald Alexander: An amusing 1950s comedy about a tomboy who successfully tries out for the high school football team – and makes her boyfriend fell very insecure along the way!

Football Theater by Rob Frankel: A tongue-in-cheek farce about a coach who suddenly finds himself running a community theater. He directs production of “Frankenstein” using athletes for actors.

When the Lights Come On by Brian Letscher: A dramatic production about “college coaches and the women in their lives, focusing on loyalty, commitment and the escalating price of winning at all costs."
