A single mother discovers that her ten-year-old daughter is a tennis phenom. When a young, dedicated coach takes Carlin under his wing, her meteoric rise takes shape and this threesome struggles over what is best when building up a champion.

Our Very Own Carlin McCullough was commissioned as part of The Geffen Playhouse's New Play Development Program thanks to the generosity of Mary Bianco, The MOCA Foundation. Major support of the Geffen's world premiere production is provided by the Edgerton Foundation New Play Production Fund.

Peet's first play, The Commons of Pensacola, ran Off-Broadway at Manhattan Theatre Club in 2013 and starred Blythe Danner and Sarah Jessica Parker.
