Hockey Mom, Hockey Dad
Love in the bleachers. Blood on the ice. The usual small town affair.
Hockey Mom, Hockey Dad by Michael Melski is a slashing two-hander about two lonely single parents who meet and fall in love while watching their kids play a season of minor hockey. In their section of the bleachers in an old rink, they find the best and worst in themselves reflected by the game. Love and violence collide in this tender, uproarious, and sometimes disturbing story about our national obsession.
Hockey Mom, Hockey Dad has delighted traditional theatre goers and critics, and just as significant it has also brought new audiences to the theatre – those who typically are more familiar with the arena than the stage.
