CHAMP AND HIS FOUR WOMEN by Art Shulman

£6.00

Champ’s wife, who he calls Princess, has been dead for a year, but she appears as a figment of his imagination. (We see her on stage.). He is depressed, missing her so much. But then three other women appear who change his life – his nosy next-door neighbor, a real estate agent who wants to sell his condo, and a clerk at the market who makes his daily ham and cheese sandwich with potato salad. The real estate agent and the clerk are attracted to Champ, and he to them. But he’s reluctant to pursue a relationship due to his devotion to the memories of Princess. At the end, due to urging by Princess, he decides to move on with life, choosing one of the women.

Whatever gets you in the door to see Champ and His Four Women…depth of subject, forceful performance, incredible music selection, parking access…whatever. Go the first time for yourself and then go back with your special friends. …. surely, most certainly, you will know someone… perhaps many someones…who should see Champ and His Four Women. I know I do. – Corina Roberts, Patch

Shulman brings a light though thoughtful look at grieving, healing, and moving on, blending tender moments with comic relief in his moving script. Director Stan Mazin keeps action intimate and personal in the small space. – Mary Mallory, Tolucan Times

CHAMP AND HIS FOUR WOMEN is an appealing play …reminding those that one is never totally gone, let alone forgotten. It also shows how life can become a wonder as well. – Rich Borowy, Accessibly Line

Champ and His Four Women has a great deal of reality to it. The play is written in a light comedy style with a talented cast that does justice to their characters – Carol Segal, Better Lemons

In examining a topic that most all of us have to deal with in our lives, it gives a well-rounded viewpoint and perspective to death and dying, life and living, and manages to lift our spirits in the process. – Broadway World
