"Don't you dare say it's only a game. In The Last Match, life itself is at stake." —Ben Brantley, The New York Times
"A classic sports rivalry that combines humor and pathos with natural ease" —Roma Torre, NY1
You’ve given it all to reach the top of your game. Now where do you go
from here? That’s the question at the heart of Anna Ziegler’s new play The Last Match.
It’s the semifinals of the US Open, and two tennis greats are facing
off in the match of their lives. Tim Porter, the aging all-American
favorite, wants to prove to the world, his wife and himself that he’s
still a champion. Hot-headed rising star Sergei Sergeyev struggles to
believe he truly deserves to beat his lifelong hero.
