A heartwarming comedy about the world of theatre.

By Ray Sipherd

On the stage of a small theater in New York City, six people are gathering. Two are older actors; Justin Halsey and Alicia Carr; and a  younger couple, Tom McCracken and Sarah Simms. The others are the director, Gabriel Getz, and his assistant, Penny Nicholas. It is the first day of rehearsal of a new play called Celebrations, dramatizing the events that mark the passage of our lives.

But how true to their own lives are those of the characters the actors play? Its a question for which no rehearsal can prepare them or for answers they must suddenly confront. All the worlds a stage, and all the men and woman merely players, Shakespeare said.

In Players, bonds are made and broken, secrets are revealed, and the future of each one of them is changed in ways that no one can foresee.
