The Last Match

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 U.S. 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.

Set against the high-stakes backdrop of professional sports, this New York premiere, directed by Gaye Taylor Upchurch, serves up a richly theatrical look at what keeps us striving and why.

Anna Ziegler’s The Last Match will begin performances on September 28, 2017 and open officially on October 24, 2017. This is a limited engagement Off-Broadway.

Roundabout’s work with new and emerging playwrights and directors, as well as development of new work, is made possible by Katheryn Patterson and Tom Kempner.
