On Friday 10 May 2013, Somerset Valley Players in Hillsborough, New Jersey will present a staged reading of “Replays (Great Moments Live Forever)” by William E. Spear. Replays is set in a failing restaurant of the same name where four characters confront their pasts so they might plan their futures.
Marie Times is an aging reporter who is pursuing one last payday before retiring. In the final hours before her broadcast tribute to legendary and recently passed away sportscaster, Johnny Parks, she befriends three people:
- Joey Stilts, a writer who played on a championship football team over 35 years ago and whose teammates are gradually dying off;
- Jack Downs, owner of the sports-themed restaurant named Replays which is on the verge of bankruptcy; and
- Lois Chaos, a 16‑year‑old high school student whose passion for playing classical music is colliding with her parents’ wishes for her to pursue lacrosse.
Each will choose action based upon their own circumstances but inspired by the sports in their pasts. And they will learn, through their experience at Replays, no matter how they choose, their best moments will live forever.
All tickets for “Replays (Great Moments Live Forever)” are free and are limited to the the first 99 patrons. The time of the reading is being finalized. There will also be a question and answer session afterwards.
Please come out and support the cast of “Replays (Great Moments Live Forever).”
