THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON made its debut at The Public Theater in May 1972 before moving to Broadway's Booth Theatre where it went on to win the Pulitzer Prize, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play and the Tony Award for Best Play for the 1973 season. It played a total of 944 performances on and off Broadway.
THAT CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON is a powerhouse drama about the promise of youth... and the challenge of staying in the game. For over two decades, four players and the coach of a high school championship basketball team have gathered every year to re-live their greatest moment of glory. While three of The Players have found small-town success, the fourth has never found his way. At this year's reunion, tensions boil over, and as the celebratory evening turns brutal, long-held secrets bubble to the surface and life-long bonds are shattered.
