Kevin Reilly Hosting The Q&A at Tommy and Me

Tommy and Me
By Ray Didinger
Directed by Joe Canuso

Philadelphia Eagles’ Hall of Famer Tommy McDonald was the famously tough wide receiver who helped take the Birds to the 1960 NFL Championship game. Ten year-old Ray Didinger met McDonald during one of his family’s visits to Hershey, the home of the Birds summer training camp. Back then, things were relaxed and the two struck up a friendship. Ray went on to become one of Philly’s favorite sons – legendary sports writer, commentator, radio personality, storyteller, and author. What began as remembrances of a childhood experience became Ray Didinger’s autobiographical show, Tommy and Me, recounting a seminal time in Ray’s life when he helped his lifelong hero get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Every performance includes a post-show talk-back with guests including the playwright, director, cast members, and special visitors.

Tommy was drafted by the Eagles in 1957 and played on the team until 1964. At Franklin Field, he helped the Eagles win against Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers.

After the play, Kevin Reilly and Ray Didinger will go on stage, talk about the play, and take questions from the audience.

The event is finished.
