New MRT Show About Baseball: Tinker to Evers to Chance

Chicago_Cubs_logo_1957_to_1978by Mat Smart

directed by Sean Daniels
The power of the love of the game.
Feb. 10 – Mar. 6
(Remember to reserve at the library your $10 off pass for up to 6 tickets a performance.)

REGIONAL PREMIERE

Baseball fans know all about commitment and hope. But in life outside the ballpark, that dedication can be harder to hold on to. Lauren is thinking only about the monumentally important playoff game she and her mother are about to attend, but her mother has her own agenda. In this touching play, set against the dual backdrops of the 2003 and 1906 Chicago Cub teams, three die-hard fans and one die-hard player reveal the redeeming power of baseball.
