John Posey’s cleverly written, one-man show called “Father, Son & Holy Coach” is a perfect example of how much fun you can have as an audience member watching a show and thinking about how much work went into it by one performer.... full review

PAULINE ADAMEK artsbeatla, stage raw says "bitter sweet" · August 21, 2015
It’s a sweet story, but the show, with its persistent football-as-a- metaphor-for-life theme, might drag for those indifferent to the pigskin.... full review

PAUL BIRCHALL stage raw, stage and cinema says "bitter sweet" · March 03, 2016
But director Terri Hanauer is unable to rein in Posey’s tendency to milk his lines or occasionally insert awkward pauses. Designer Pete Hickok’s sets – a football locker room and Dad’s living room —create an arresting ambiance. Yee Eun Nam’s cool video projections conjure up a pitch perfect air of nostalgia. ... full review

Posey’s memories of the Deep South comingle with father-son relationship issues in this fresh look at fanaticism in football - and how football may really be molding the young. Posey manages to play all 20 roles in this solo performance - and does so with ease and humor. Rapid-fire character changes keep the audience glued to their seats, while very funny lines keep the laughs flowing. This reviewer happened to be sitting next to a group of adolescents boys during the performance. It was clear as a bell that they related to just about every scene in a very personal way. In fact, this show might be a clever way to lure younger theater-goers, especially boys, into the theater for a possible life-long commitment.... full review

And don’t be concerned if you are not a football fan as this story is a timeless one about a father who only wants what is best for his son. But those who do understand the game will certainly catch all the humor and angst being shared by John Posey – and wait until you see the specialty chair that holds a very prominent space on the set designed by Pete Hickok, whose small space multi-level and location modules allow the action to move from field to locker room, living room to radio station. Sound designer Dino Hermann appropriately includes “A Rainy Night in George” and “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” into the heartbeat of the production, no doubt taking you back to your own Friday night lights.... full review
