This play is based on the novel The Last Comeback. It is the story of Frank Shannon and his quest for greatness, to make a difference, to leave a mark. It is a story that will appeal to all those who once in their own lives believed they were destined to do great things.
There was so much he wanted to say but how to say it best? Should he stand on some corner at noon and shout it out for all the world to hear? "Hey listen people, I've got the answers." Should he spread it out in colour across a canvas in scenes so gripping it would make people stop in their tracks and shake their heads. "Hey, this man's been there, he knows the way." There were so many people out there lost and confused, stumbling around in the dark crying out for help. If only somehow he could express his feelings, all the things he had learned then maybe somehow they would see the light and save themselves.
It is a story that will resonate with many who in their own lives have been aware of their mortality, have struggled fiercely to make an impact and believe deeply that it is important to leave a legacy, to speak in some way to those who follow.
