THE STORY: Following their annual custom, five men—a high-school basketball coach, now retired, and four members of the team that he guided to the state championship twenty years earlier—meet for a reunion. The occasion begins in a light-hearted mood but gradually, as the pathos and desperation of their present lives are exposed and illuminated, the play takes on a rich power of rare dimension. One former player is now the inept mayor of the town—and facing a strong challenge for re-election. Another, the frustrated principal of the local high school, is his ambitious campaign manager. A third, now a successful (and destructive) businessman, is wavering in his financial support of the mayor. While the fourth is a witty, but despairing alcoholic. As the evening progresses all that these men were—and have become—is revealed and examined with biting humor and saving compassion. In the end self-preservation, abetted by the unconscious cynicism and bigotry of their coach, draws them together. But they are lost, morally bankrupt men holding onto fraudulent dreams that have poisoned their present lives and robbed them of the future that was once so rich in promise.

Jason Miller, 1939 - 2001 Jason Miller was born on Long Island City, Queens, New York, but grew up in Scranton Pennsylvania. Miller graduated from St. Patrick's and the Jesuit-run University of Scranton, with a degree in english and philosophy. He received his graduate degree from Catholic University in Washington. After graduation, Miller entertained many odd jobs to make enough money to pay the bills. He worked as a welfare investigator, waiter, truck driver and messenger boy, all the while penning various plays such as, "The Circus Lady," "Perfect Son," and "Lou Gherig Did Not Die of Cancer." When one of his plays finally made it big, Miller was living off of unemployment, but it was the break he needed. After "That Championship Season", Miller went on to act in several other movies and miniseries, but is perhaps best known for his role as the priest in "The Exorcist." Miller won the Pulitzer Prize for his play, "That Championship Season" as well as a Tony Award in 1972. The play was made into a film in 1982, and the play itself was revived in 1999. Miller himself won an Emmy Award for his role in "The Exorcist." Jason Miller died on May 13, 2001 of a heart attack in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He was 62.
