About the Play

Set against the backdrop of their perennially dismal football team's surprisingly successful season, three long-time friends (Mark, Ryan & Elliot) are faced with a situation where they must do the impossible: recognize the importance of their friendship. Mark is offered a new high paying job by his current fling, but taking the job will mean moving away from everything he knows. Filled with the inane antics of (nearly) middle aged sports fans, this play is sure to have you laughing and rolling your eyes.

Britt Kaufmann was awarded a RAP Grant to assist with the writing, production, and advertising of Between The Tackles.  So a special thanks goes out to the Toe River Arts Council the other counties' arts councils and the NC Arts Council.

Note to prospective theatres:  Running time came down significantly between when it was reviewed and the close of the run (2 hours 23 minutes).  Also factoring into running time was that there were no stage hands; actors changed the sets themselves.  So, with further post-production edits, we estimate run time should be just over 2 hours.
