Good old boys and football--it's hard to separate the two. Grisham's story of small-town Southerners who live for football is told mainly through dialogue, both internal and external. The downside of this production is Grisham's flat delivery and lack of acting ability. Writers often can hear dialogue clearly enough in their minds, but the verbalizing is no easy task. If you're wondering what Grisham sounds like, this is a great opportunity; if you love good acting and narration, this isn't. Middle-aged regret and crises abound among the characters, the common thread being their love of Coach. D.J.B.
