    An intense play about the competitive nature of the football business and the way power shifts can drive someone to their breaking point. The deeper nature of patriotic metaphors we make to cultivate a religious attitude about sports are well captured. Truly captivating and well done.

    One of the most ambitious plays I’ve read in awhile! Time jump plays normally give me a headache, but this one was such a clear descent that I was able to keep up with no problems. There’s some ghostly, mad rowdiness in here I have not yet seen onstage! Furthermore, even though it is a “football play,” it is still anchored in the truthfulness of the family dynamics. It's a long journey through time and space, but it held me captivated all the way through. Just fascinating.
