Young Will has admitted that he is left-handed. How can he tell this to his family? His friends? Afraid of repercussions, he's hid this sordid fact about himself for years. He eats with his right hand. His parents and his girlfriend don't know. He can't go on lying like this, but how can he come out of the glove compartment? Although one person in ten is left-handed, society hasn't caught up with the facts. The school's star quarterback admitted to being ambidextrous and was kicked off the team. Some still consider it a mental disease. There are rumors that the President of the United States is himself a leftie, and this is why he avoided the draft. Will our hero find the strength to reveal his true nature and "Remove the Glove"?
Removing the Glove was given a staged reading by the TheatreVirginia on July 17, 1993 as part of its "New Voices for Theatre" program and was directed by Denise Simone. It was subsequently produced on February 13, 1994 by the Brooke Point Players, at Brook Point High School in Stafford, Virginia where it was directed by Nikki B. Carr.

This play is great for high school use as it is hilarious without being cheesy, yet deals with subject matter that is relevant and appropriate. I found it provided our tech department some opportunities to be creative, especially with the television voices and interviews. great play. highly recommend.
