That Championship Season

By Jason Miller
Directed by Kelli Bocock-Natale

THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON is a 1972 play by Jason Miller. It was the recipient of the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The setting is 1972 at the Coach's home in Scranton, Pennsylvania. On the twentieth anniversary of their victory in the Pennsylvania state championship game, four members of the starting lineup of a Catholic high school basketball team have gathered to celebrate. The coach is terminally ill, and this reunion may be their last chance to reminisce with him. However, the fifth member of the starting lineup, Martin, has refused to attend the reunion; he bears a grudge against the Coach, for reasons that do not become clear until late in the play.

Starring Mark Donohue, John Kruezer, Richard Lambert, Victor Morales and Greg Natale
