Runt of the Litter, ex-football star Bo Eason's semiautobiographical solo play will begin an Off-Broadway engagement at 37 Arts on November 30. The show, to be directed by Larry Moss, will open officially on December 9.

First seen in 2002, Runt looks at what happens to two brothers in a family of overachievers and the youngest son is told he is too small to compete in the world of football. Eason was a defensive back for the Houston Oilers in the 1980s.

Since retiring from the NFL, Eason has acted in film and television, including roles in Pride and Glory, A Bright Shining Lie, and Boston Grace.

Moss' many directorial credits include The Syringa Tree, RFK, Beast on the Moon, and Who Is Floyd Stearn?
