Don Devers was a celebrated NFL star linebacker for 9 years. Now in his 50s, the toll of his excellence has decimated his body and mind. He spends his days in his chair subsisting on Gatorade and Pringles. Don’s daughter sets up a meeting with Don’s biggest fan, aspiring sports writer Ed Ryan. Don agrees to let Ed spend a week with him and gives him full access to write about his life.

Thrilled at first, Ed soon realizes that there is more to Don than his heroics on the field in this poignant, heartfelt story from playwright Ken Weitzman.

The California Honeydrops celebrate their 10th year together with the release of their 7th studio album and first ever double album, Call It Home: Vol. 1 & 2 and continue to perform worldwide. Led by dynamic vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lech Wierzynski, and drawing on diverse musical influences from Bay Area R&B, funk, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second-line, the Honeydrops bring vibrant energy and infectious dance-party vibes to their shows. In 2016 and 2017 the Honeydrops were honored to support Bonnie Raitt on her North America release tour -- and in the past have been privileged to support the likes of B.B. King, Allen Toussaint, Buddy Guy, and Dr. John. Whether in those high-profile performances or in more intimate venues where the band itself can leave the stage and get down on the dance floor, the California Honeydrops’ shared vision and purpose remain: to make the audience dance and sing.

Don Devers was a celebrated NFL star linebacker for 9 years. Now in his 50s, the toll of his excellence has decimated his body and mind. He spends his days in his chair subsisting on Gatorade and Pringles. Don’s daughter sets up a meeting with Don’s biggest fan, aspiring sports writer Ed Ryan. Don agrees to let Ed spend a week with him and gives him full access to write about his life.

Thrilled at first, Ed soon realizes that there is more to Don than his heroics on the field in this poignant, heartfelt story from playwright Ken Weitzman.

The California Honeydrops celebrate their 10th year together with the release of their 7th studio album and first ever double album, Call It Home: Vol. 1 & 2 and continue to perform worldwide. Led by dynamic vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Lech Wierzynski, and drawing on diverse musical influences from Bay Area R&B, funk, Southern soul, Delta blues, and New Orleans second-line, the Honeydrops bring vibrant energy and infectious dance-party vibes to their shows. In 2016 and 2017 the Honeydrops were honored to support Bonnie Raitt on her North America release tour -- and in the past have been privileged to support the likes of B.B. King, Allen Toussaint, Buddy Guy, and Dr. John. Whether in those high-profile performances or in more intimate venues where the band itself can leave the stage and get down on the dance floor, the California Honeydrops’ shared vision and purpose remain: to make the audience dance and sing.
