    Cringe-inducing and hilarious comedy that puts both a therapist and their client in the worst possible situation together: A little league game. I love this piece, even though it has turned me off to ever going to one of my kids' sports games ever again.

    It's hard to be two average little league dads when one of you is a therapist and the other is a client. So much comic gold is mined from the aspects of the client's issues that do leak out. The therapist sure has his hands full. It's also a wonder that his poor son Jarrod can concentrate at all with his lunatic father sitting behind home plate.

    I think I uttered “oh no!” three times on page one! And indeed, the awkward situation only gets worse with crossed boundaries, shaky professionalism, and the temperaments of sports dads put private issues in full public view. The play uses the ball game to present intimate histories and dynamics In the context of a realistically larger world that extends far beyond the field. Fun and funny!
