Casting Set for Championship Season

Casting has been announced for “That Championship Season” next February at Westport Country Playhouse, the first production to be directed by Mark Lamos since he was named artistic director.

Cast members are Robert Clohessy, John Doman, Lou Liberatore, Tom Nelis and Skipp Sudduth. Clohessy was on Broadway in “Pal Joey” and “Twelve Angry Men.” Doman played Deputy Police Commissioner William Rawls on the HBO series, “The Wire,” from 2002 to 2008. Liberatore received Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle award nominations for his performance in “Burn This” on Broadway. Nelis won an Obie Award for his portray of Marshall McLuhan in “The Medium.” Sudduth appeared on Broadway in “South Pacific,” “The Iceman Cometh” and “Twelfth Night,” and was a series regular on television’s “Third Watch.”

“That Championship Season” takes place at a reunion of a high school basketball coach, now retired, and four members of the team that he guided to the state championship 20 years earlier. As the evening progresses, secrets are revealed, loyalties tested and the foundation of their long-held dreams is found to be fraudulent. A play of savage humor and giant passions, “That Championship Season” probes the darker aspects of the American creed of success.
