CINCINNATI PLAYWRIGHTS INITIATIVE - CPI New Voices Series
Gary Douglas is a dejected, recently-divorced, sixty-year-old man. He joins a men’s basketball league thinking he can return to something else he loved before. After joining the Shooting Stars basketball team, he learns that their goal becomes his: to get to the Final Four of the Senior Olympics. During this quest, Gary unexpectedly meets Susie Weston, a frustrated writer pursuing her own dreams and aspirations. Susie and Gary’s fun and poignant journey together with Gary’s teammates, and their spouses and friends, bring them all to a realization that it’s never too late to triumph in life and love.
Unfinished Business is a comedy by husband-and-wife playwriting team Susan and Doug Decatur. Doug has written eight plays, six of which have been stage-read by Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative over the last nine years. Two other plays were stage-produced at Village Players in Ft. Thomas, KY, and the Know Theatre in Cincinnati. Susan is the author of the short play, Denise’s Do-Over, read during CPI’s "Love Fest," last season. Denise’s Do-Over received a fully staged production at The Drama Workshop's Home Brew Theater competition, and again virtually at TDW's Home View Theater during the pandemic. Susan's short play Buy the Book was recently performed at the Know Theatre. Both Susan and Doug have also performed in CPI readings and community theatre presentations.
