Bobby and Lee are a long-married couple. Lee is a hard-driving women’s basketball coach. Bobby was a basketball coach and, later, an insurance salesman. But now, Bobby is in failing health, even though he is only 51.
As his physical condition declines further, Bobby finds himself confronted by choices: whether to fight for every breath and explore every conceivable avenue in the hope that things will improve; or whether to make preparations for a graceful exit.
There are still things left unsaid and undone between Lee and Bobby. These things are suddenly brought into sharp focus, as time may be running out.
If we are fortunate enough to live long enough, we may all have to contemplate the decisions being faced by Bobby and Lee, in the World Premiere play “Holding On~ Letting Go.”
