A Reading of "The Foot Shooters" - A new play by Paul Coleman

Saturday, November 22, 2008 at 8:00 pm


A Blue Horse Repertory presentation

Presented by Blue Horse Repertory

In "The Foot Shooters", a group of bright misfits band together to try to help one another finally become successful and happy. But a series of mishaps, miscues, and misapprehensions turns their aspirations into riotous desperation. THE FOOT SHOOTERS is a poignant comedy and a calamitous love story involving a manic Broadway producer, two bakers, and oddball court reporter, a lovable but befuddled composer and...a ghost? Written by Paul Coleman, this play will warm you and tickle you, and reveals that what matters most in life can't be measured by anything other than love.
