Format: Paperback
Jason Miller's Pulizer Prize-winning play "That Championship Season" tells the story of five friends from high school who get together at their coach's home to celebrate the 15th anniversery of their high school basketball team's championship. Throughout the course of the night, as the men get drunker and drunker, certain secrets come out that threaten to ruin the bond that these men have had over the years. Miller writes with such enthusiasm and blistering reality that the reader is in awe as he flips the pages. He gives us characters that are believable and likeable. Anyone who is a fan of cut-throat theatre and loves to read a good play should go and buy "That Championship Season." It is Miller's only real triumph in the theatre world, but it makes a strong statement as to the condition of the human spirit.

Format: Paperback
Perhaps better known as an actor than a writer, Jason Miller created THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON in 1972. The original Off-Broadway production had 144 performances and was so popular that it transferred to Broadway for an additional 844 performances--a substantial success for a fairly dark drama about small town hypocrisy. The play won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize, the Tony for Best Play, and several other notable awards. It is performed on a single unit set with a cast of five men, one elderly, four middle-aged.

The story concerns the unraveling of a group of men who won the state basketball championship in the 1950s and who have continued to bask in the victory's rapidly fading glory. Once a year four of the teammates meet at their old coach's house to celebrate win, but on this occasion they have less cause for celebration than they do for concern. Coach has recently returned from a hospital stay, and the script strongly implies that he has a terminal illness (probably cancer) that he refuses to acknowledge; this will likely be the last reunion. George has managed to become the town's mayor, but he has become an object of public ridicule and now faces a challenging opponet in the upcoming election--and Phil, George's wealthy backer, has become hesitant to put his money behind George's campaign. James is a part of the local political machine, hoping to ride to office on George's back; his brother Tom is a drunk who James hunts down and spruces up once a year for the reunion.

As the play progresses most of the characters are gradually exposed as small-minded, hypocritical bigots with trivial ambitions. They have relied on advice from Coach to get them through life--but now that era is coming to an end and its passing leaves them at a loss.

no nonsense, very American play about winning and power, where winning isn't everything... its the only thing, and any route that gets it is worth taking.
