    I absolutely loved this! The dynamic between Mark and the therapist is so fun and fresh. I love the cutting back and forth and the occasional juxtaposition of baseball and the therapy sessions. This is a unique short comedy that actors and directors can have so much fun with!

    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!

    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.
