Runt of the Litter is Bo Eason’s play that has toured in over 50 cities and opened in New York to critical acclaim. A semiautobiographical account of Bo Eason's life and career as a safety for the Houston Oilers in the 1980s, this piece is resolutely American in its themes -- the competitiveness and violence of sports, sibling rivalry, and underdog makes good. In this substantive one-man show that he wrote and now performs, Bo gives a sexy, tough, charismatic performance of size and scope. The show cuts across all demographics and has an across-the-board appeal for everyone, from sports enthusiasts to hardcore theater lovers.

"One of the most powerful plays about sports in the last decade.... closer to Death of a Salesman than it is to Rocky...a tale of modern gladiators, obsession, testosterone, and revenge."
