THE STORY: Ash (believe me, you do not want to call her “Ashley”) Miller’s dream is to catch the winning touchdown pass for the Westmont High Titans’ Homecoming game. Football is in her blood. In order to make the team, Ash will have to prove she is one of the guys, even if that means sacrificing her body for the love of the game.
“…riveting new play…tight and compelling, with plenty of humor to leaven the intensity.” —Talkin’ Broadway
“Beautifully illustrates the world of small-town high school football and its influence on its fans…describes the difficulty so familiar to trailblazers, especially women, who aren’t taken seriously.” —PerformInk Chicago

“TIGHT END raises awareness—of women in sports; of assumptions of femininity; of conceptions of masculinity; and, indirectly, of small-town Midwest USA life.” —Chicago Critic
