A casual match with a pro

In For the Glory Danny Cornett, a MasterWorks theatre student, is playing Robby, the friend of Kurt Kuykendall, pictured here between us. Alistair Sewell, who performed in last year's MasterWorks production of Our Town will be playing Young Robby.

The film tells how Kurt got to play soccer for the Olympics. He went on to play pro for two US teams and three teams in England.

After our cast dinner Danny and I went to watch Kurt play a game. His team was made of members of The King's Chapel, the church that is producing For the Glory. It included Kurt's wife, at least one of their kids, and our screenwriters. They beat the other team soundly. I lost track of the score, but it was approaching 10 to zero.
