Brief review:
Offsides is a moving family drama that uncovers the angst and struggles of a seemingly average suburban family. Three generations, each with its own story and conflicts, interact to produce the central character’s conflict and eventual resolution. The ending, which may be shocking to some, is carefully constructed to flow naturally from the plot. Both young and older audiences will find something to relate to in this tale of life, love, and family needs.

~Anthony Giordano, NJ playwright and independent filmmaker

Offsides was first produced at the Watchung Arts Center in Watchung, NJ in 2010.
