This drama by the author of Mass Appeal explores the heart of a young man in crisis, inflamed by the people who claim to care for him: his mother, his football coach and his tutor. James Bernard is a star college quarterback whose innocence renders him devastatingly vulnerable. His mother and coach are pushing him to go "professional"; his tutor is concerned over the inherent corruption of organized athletics, believing that football is just another metaphor for war.
"A thoroughly commendable play...A solid piece of work [with]...taut, provocative scenes." - Wall Street Journal
