About “The Play About the Coach”

In the final three minutes of the defining game of his career, a coach’s world comes crashing down around him. As the clock ticks away, the coach comes head-to-head with a backstabbing assistant, a gifted adversary, a God-like referee and a mysterious stranger who repeatedly phones down to the bench – all while trying to pull his team through to victory. The Play About the Coach is a thrilling one-man show that takes the audience on the ride of a lifetime.

“The Play About the Coach” was written by and stars Paden Fallis. Fallis has performed “The Play About The Coach” at the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, Out of the Loop Festival in Dallas (Top Touring Production for the 2008/09 Season by the Dallas Fort Worth Theatre Critics Association), The Capital Fringe Festival in Washington DC and The 4th Street Theatre in New York. His second one-man show, Dark at the End of the Tunnel, was developed in residency with The Field in 2010 and has played at the Out of the Loop Festival in Dallas and the United Solo Festival on New York’s Theatre ROW.

Some New York credits include: “The Phantom Lady” (Pearl Theatre), “The Master Builder” (The Century Theatre), “Outlaws” (The John Houseman Theatre), “any-body” (First Look Theatre Co.), “A Lie of the Mind” (Mary MacArthur Theatre) and “Kith and Kin” (Rocketship Productions). Other regional credits include “Almost, Maine” and “Love Song” (Chester Theatre), “Amphytrion” (Theatre Three).

In New York, Paden’s work has also been seen at The Players Club, The Kitchen, Stand Up New York and the People’s Improv Theatre. As a writer, Paden’s short story “Don’t Let Them [Bite]” was published on the website Haggard and Halloo in 2011 and his story “1342 County Road,” was part of artist Justin Adian’s exhibition “Come and Take It” at the Blackston Gallery in 2012. Paden also works as a performing arts contributing editor for Stated Magazine. He is a member of SAG/AFTRA and Actors Equity and is a graduate of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
