Playing On Air, a podcast dedicated to audio productions of short plays, celebrated its 100th episode with a live recording of David Auburn's An Upset. The sports drama is performed by Stranger Things star David Harbour (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Coast of Utopia) and Tony nominee Steven Boyer (Hand to God, NBC’s Trial & Error).
The episode is now available for listening.
In An Upset, a confident, jaded tennis star (Harbour) loses a pivotal match to an inexperienced Romanian player (Boyer), pushing the two men into an unlikely battle for dominance on and off the court.
After the play, the company and podcast host Claudia Catania discuss working with your idols and what it means to be an amateur.
Playing On Air was launched in 2015. Alums include Timothée Chalamet, Audra McDonald, Zoe Kazan, Adam Driver, Denis O'Hare, and Bobby Cannavale in plays by Lynn Nottage, David Lindsay-Abaire, Julia Cho, Donald Margulies, and David Ives.
