That Championship Season

HFCC's Summer Drama Strikes A Familiar Chord

Richard Marsh Dearborn Press and Guide May 18, 1989

We have all been to parties attended by bores who continually drink and whose conversation is tolerable for only a few minutes. The characters in "That Championship Season," staged last weekend by Henry Ford Community College, recalls vivid memories of people such as these, thanks to some effective acting by the cast and the first-rate direction of George Popovich.

Although some of the performances tended to fluctuate somewhat, the actors brought enough emotion and realism to their roles so the audience hated the characters, but still felt for them and their problems.
