Synopsis

Matt Rieger's new play takes an uncompromising look at winning, losing, and living as a handful of characters wrestles with tough and tender memories of the sporting life. Pride, prejudice, aggression, gamesmanship. In A Part of the Game, every field is a maze of delicate lines, every game a gridlock of rules, and everyone strives to do the right thing. Even if it means going out of bounds.

Originally performed as a solo monologue in The Other Side of the Elephant in 2008, A Part of the Game has been expanded and developed as an ensemble piece, receiving its premiere at A House Unbuilt performance space in Ravenswood.
