No Clients in Baseball (Ten Minute Play)

    If you’re seeing a therapist, I imagine the last public place you’d want to meet them is your child’s little league game. All that adult aggression directed the little ones. Likewise, if you’re a therapist, meeting a client at the game can be complicated. Marcia Eppich-Harris hits a home run with this comedy as she lets the awkwardness and tension of the situation build. Great use of the unseen game as both a distraction from the unwanted conversation and a source of conflict. This play deserves a major league production!

    There are 2 games going on in Marcia Eppich-Harris' delightful short play, and only one of them is fun (for the participants, that is). While their sons battle it out on the diamond, 2 fathers have a much more personal battle going on. One who takes things personally, and the other doing his best to keep it IMpersonal. With witty dialogue split between the two events, one on the other off the field, the game could go either way. Take me out... to the theater to see this one.
