October 9th -- Nov. 2nd

A play by Jonathan A. Goldberg

Directed by Courtney Ulrich

The heartbreaking play about George Edward "Rube" Waddell, the greatest lefty pitcher of the deadball era, comes to Brooklyn.  

The play begins in a ratty Texas hotel where the down-and-out former ballplayer is awaiting his last chance at the big leagues.  He hires the Reptile Girl from a local circus to keep him company -- and sober.  They share a long night of secrets, pain, and past regrets.

After playing to sold out shows in Minnesota, Indianapolis, and San Francisco -- Shelby Company brings this heartbreaking baseball story to Brooklyn for an immersive theatrical experience.
