There's no 'I' in team. But there is in family. Stephen and Paul Dowd were two of the most highly touted prospects in baseball. Stephen lived up to the hype with an amazing career in the Big Leagues. His bother Paul...never got off the plate. Now, after retiring from the game with an injury, Stephen is divorced, broke, and forced to consider a lucrative offer to film a Reality TV show about his life. But the Producers don't just want Stephen; they want Paul and their fame-seeking younger brother Kevin as well. Secondary Pitch is a biting new play about brothers, rivalry and staying on top of the game.
"I've always been curious what it must feel like to fail at something you love, only to watch someone close to you, with little to no effort, flourish at it," said playwright Larry Phillips. "Secondary Pitch is my look at what jealousy and pride can do to someone who's forced to face it on a daily basis."
From Director Matthew J. Nichols: The three Dowd brothers, despite their past successes and failures, are all grasping for a second chance, and the stakes have never been higher. Any one of them could emerge victorious or fall hopelessly in the dirt. Our goal in this intimate production is to draw the audience into the players' struggles and let them decide for themselves who are the real winners and losers.
Secondary Pitch plays for 14 performances from October 9-25, 2014. Performances are Wednesdays-Saturdays at 8:00pm; Sundays @ 3pm; plus - Tuesday, October 14th at 7pm.
The run time for Secondary Pitch is 90 minutes, with no intermission.
