The established coach (John Lepard) and his new assistant (Tobin Hissong) clash in their approaches to the game, their sons, and their lives, creating an awkward collaboration and testing ground for both. Under the deft direction of Tony Casselli, it’s one of those special scripts that dances easily between comedy and drama, never leaning too hard either way. As the play progresses, we see each of these characters grow beyond simplistic proponents of “winning” versus “having fun” to explore the complexities of power/status/courage/faith/relationships.
You don’t have to be a baseball/Little League fan to enjoy this show, but anyone who does have such sports connections will love it even more.
