GIRL GONE: OR BEFORE A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN Opens Off-broadway This Month
From the writer and director of the Off-Broadway hit play Black Angels Over Tuskegee, playwright Layon Gray explores women in baseball with his latest work Girl Gone: Or Before A League Of Their Own. "Set in 1945, before there was " A League Of Their Own," a group of girls were placed together to see if such a league could work. Two weeks before this team was to make its exhibition, the coach is mysteriously found dead leaving the girls to face this big event alone. Lies, and deceit come to light as this powerful drama unveils. This suspenseful drama captures an era in American history when women were called upon to keep baseball alive as the men went off to fight in World War II.
The powerful all female cast stars Cassandra Cloutier, Sophia Shefner, Karlyn Baranowski, Bridgette Karl, Brielle Leigh, Samantha Glovin, Gabby Cocco, Joanna Pinto, Emma Glassman, Lily Dickinson, Dina Laura, and Sara Fitzpatrick.
