RUNNING INTERFERENCE, an exploration of the personal costs professional athletes pay to play, will receive its world premiere in the 2015 New York International Fringe Festival. Written by Broadway's MAMMA MIA / CBS' "Blue Bloods" actor Eric William Morris and Yale graduate Ashley Rodbro, both members of musical theater writer Joe Iconis' "family" of collaborators, RUNNING INTERFERENCE marks Morris and Rodbro's New York writing debut. Performances will begin August 15.

Ryan's sole ambition has always been to become an NFL quarterback. After his third concussion as a backup quarterback, RUNNING INTERFERENCE follows Ryan on a weekend at his best friends' lake house that unearths the price of living out his dreams in a melancholy, nostalgic, and true-to-the-sport memory play. Jonathan Judge Russo directs the production.
