WHAT: Ball Yards, a World Premiere play. A darkly comic look at America’s true national religion: Sports!
WHO: Written by Chuck Faerber. Directed by Richard Kuhlman.
ESTIMATED RUNNING TIME: 85 minutes.
A Los Angeles Dodgers game is broadcast by a blithely detached announcer during the onset of nuclear winter. The Grand Kleagle of the Ku Klux Klan prefers to learn golf fully hooded and robed. All-American football great Conquistador O’Malley abandons the gridiron for the seductive, near-naked sport of springboard diving. A network sports producer attempts to coerce a Jewish female member of an Olympic field hockey team into pretending that she has a connection with an anti-Semite. A sports commentator copes with gender transition. Hey, it could happen---and it actually does---in this delightfully quirky, surreal play.
