BANNED FROM BASEBALL, the first play written by Patricia O'Hara, is making its world premiere at the Human Race. Seems fitting to be so close to the original action. O'Hara is not only a writer but also a Professor of English Literature at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania where she teaches a course titled, not surprisingly, Baseball in American Literature and Culture. I really liked how she was able to tell this story and keep the audience interested, even though, at least the majority of us, knew how the story ended. The play was nuanced in a way that helped you see into the minds and hearts of the major players, Pete Rose and Bart Giamatti, the Baseball Commissioner. Excellent casting brought this all to life.

Acting is hard. The ability to lay yourself bare night after night, emotionally (and sometimes physically) is something that does not come easily to most people. Add into that the ability to react honestly to your acting partners, even though you may know their lines better than they do. Then, there is the difficult matter of comic timing. When all of these things click, it makes for an amazing night of theatre and you feel lucky to be part of it. You have the opportunity to experience this now, if you go to see SEX WITH STRANGERS at the Human Race Theatre Company.
