With savage humor, That Championship Season probes the darkest aspects of the American dream of success at all costs.

Closed 29 May 2011

On the anniversary of their victory in the Pennsylvania state championship game, four members of the starting lineup of a small-town Catholic high school basketball team gather with their coach to re-live their youthful glory.

As the night progresses, the long buried grudges and secrets of the once-confident players surface, threatening not just their solidarity, but the meaning of their victory.

With savage humor, That Championship Season probes the darkest aspects of the American dream of success at all costs.

In his original review of the play in the New York Times, Clive Barnes wrote, “Wow! This is precisely the kind of relevant and hard-hitting play that Broadway should be doing if it has any chance of survival. That Championship Season is Broadway theatre at its finest.”
