Overview

There has been a title change from "Look for the Good" to "Ahead of the Game."

 

Who hasn’t felt like a round peg in a square hole? In "Ahead of the Game” find out how it happens that the whole hole changes shape and not the peg.

 

"Ahead of the Game" is a contemporary, relevant, humorous and touching story loosely based on that of Pollyanna, the girl who sought to find the good in everything. Although the moniker "Pollyanna" has taken on the bias of one being overly optimistic, there is an alarming need for her message regarding bullying and power imbalance. This play inspires kindness and being a more sensitive, thoughtful, aware and respectful human being.

 

It is a play for and about all ages and all stages.

There is great potential, added dimension, additional possibilities and relevant lessons to be learned if ethnic diversity is used in casting.

The play runs approximately one hundred minutes, and can be done with or without an intermission.
