Jackie Robinson’s powerhouse contributions to the game he loved, and to the American civil-rights movement, are well-chronicled in Steven Dietz’s play for youth, Jackie and Me, opening on the IRT’s Upperstage, January 11, 2013. This exciting play illuminates Jackie Robinson’s courage and dignity in the face of cruel racial prejudice. Jackie and Me will have you on the edge of your seat while rooting for the man who changed the face of the game.


Joey Stoshack needed to learn how to control his temper and not give in to bullies. When he needed to write a school report and picked Jackie Robinson as his topic, he found the answer. Joey had an amazing skill; he could travel back in time. Holding onto a baseball card from 1947, he traveled back to meet one of the most influential baseball players in history. There he was in Branch Rickey’s office on the day Jackie Robinson signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Only now Joey was an African American boy and soon found himself facing the same taunts that Jackie Robinson had endured. With Jackie as his role-model, Joey learned to face bullies without losing control and stooping to their level. This tale of an American icon brings to life the struggles and courage it took for Jackie Robinson to become the baseball player and man of courage that he was and an example for us all.
