Act Welcomes Former NFL Star Bo Eason in Runt Of The Litter 9/18-10/24

A father's expectations. A son's dream. A brother's rivalry.

Runt of the Litter is the acclaimed, semi-autobiographical one-man show (soon to be a major motion picture) chronicles volatile family dynamics as well as triumph despite great odds. Always considered too small to play football, former Houston Oiler Bo Eason developed-then never deviated from-a 20-year-plan to go pro.
