Live Theatre Workshop proudly presents a free staged reading…

My Life in Sports

An original play written and performed by

Bill Epstein


Bill Epstein's My Life in Sports is a one-man performance piece, a dramatic memoir or

"memory play" (Tennessee Williams' term for a narrated theater piece based on the

playwright's own life) about identity, masculinity, and sports. Using sports as a lens

through which to reflect on an American boyhood and manhood spanning the last half of

the twentieth century, Epstein's nostalgic and poignant, comic and serious memories

ultimately cohere into, of all things, a love story, a beautiful and devastating love story

about how he lost his wife and became a man, and about how, as the sun's shadow

creeps inexorably across the field, he is learning to live with himself.
Presented as a

free staged reading as part of Live Theatre Workshop's Readers Theatre program.
