Max wants his father to accept him for who he is. Ford wants Max to leave him alone. In this play about family and identity, who will get what they need, and who will be left behind? 

The Boat Races, or Happy Birthday Max is set to receive a staged reading in April, 2021, as part of the New Play Festival at the University of Colorado, Boulder. 

"Hemingway had this idea that every person has two deaths actually, the one where you physically die and then one when someone thinks about you or says your name for the last time.
Do you believe people can have the second death before the first?"
