#039;Glove Story' is an original play, a finalist for the 2005 O'Neill National Playwrights Conference and the 2009 Julie Harris Playwrights Award. Performed in a staged reading at the Stella Adler Theatre in Los Angeles by Ed Asner and Sy Richardson, 'Glove Story' is a 'Sunshine Boys'-like look at two (fictional) aging boxers who battled each other in the 1950s and early '60s against the backdrop of a changing nation and the Civil Rights movement.


"Irish" Jimmy Morgan and Sandy "Sandman" Johnson are retired middleweight champions who fought a legendary trilogy in the 1950s and early '60s. "Irish" Jimmy won the middleweight crown from "the Sandman" in 1956, losing the title back in their 1958 rematch. Both times, Johnson found himself distracted by events in Montgomery and Little Rock; and when he retired for good after their 1963 draw to join the Civil Rights movement, "Irish" Jimmy never forgave him for refusing one final bout that would mark a definitive end to their rivalry.

Now in their seventies, "Irish" Jimmy finds himself down on his luck and in failing health, while "Sandman" Johnson enjoys adulation as a Civil Rights icon. But things aren't exactly as they appear, and when they find themselves reluctantly reunited in the present by a young female sportswriter, their stewing animosity erupts to hilarious and ultimately poignant effect.
