Ash (believe me, you do not want to call her “Ashley”) Miller’s dream is to catch the winning touchdown pass for the Westmont High Titans’ Homecoming game. Football is in her blood. In order to make the team, Ash will have to prove she is one of the guys even if that means sacrificing her body for the love of the game.

A powerful piece addressing the toxic culture of sports and what one must do to be a champion. Well done. ”

A sports play that manages to go the extra mile to comment on the toxicity of sports culture, and the way gender roles can define people.
This lightning fast play hits you like a linebacker before you're ready for it. It's hilarious, poignant, and heartbreaking. It completely deconstructs ideas of what makes someone a winner and what roles we are and aren't allowed to play in our lives, all against the backdrop of small-town football, something that can feel like life or death to those caught up in it. Highly recommend checking this play out. ”

A quick and powerful full length. The characters are so compelling and I feel so much for Ash Smash. A hard look at football culture and toxic masculinity up close. I’m glad to see it’s been produced and hoping there are more productions in its future. ”
