Signal Ensemble Theatre
By Ronan Marra
Directed by Aaron Snook
How hard can it be for two organizations to split a nine-billion dollar pie? Impossible, apparently. Drew is a hotshot agent hellbent on making his blue-chip but troubled client the number one pick in the pro football draft, until the team that owns the pick hires his ex-wife to rebuild the long-suffering franchise. Obstacles surmount as Drew angles to get the best possible deal for his client, but does any of it matter when labor discord threatens the very existence of the game? From the writer of Signal’s hit jukebox musical “Aftermath," Ronan Marra.
This is an exceptionally clever and amusing script with plenty of laughs"
As a smart and entertaining microcosm of an outsized industry, though, it wins"
RECOMMENDED - Aaron Snook's premiere staging is smart and convincing"
RECOMMENDED - Marra’s script crackles with wit and topicality"
