Bull Durham writer-director Ron Shelton scored a home run with his feature film debut, which was loosely based on his experiences both on and off the field with a minor league baseball team. Ranked as the greatest sports movie of all time by Sports Illustrated, the Kevin Costner feel-good hit now makes its way onto the stage in a thrilling new musical adaptation. Bull Durham tells the story of veteran catcher "Crash" Davis, who's brought to the Durham Bulls minor league team to get hot rod rookie Ebby Calvin "Nuke" LaLoosh ready for the majors. But a love triangle with the sexy Annie Savoy -- the team's self-appointed "high priestess" -- quickly heats up as each character struggles with his own desires and hopes for what the future holds. This song-filled Alliance Theatre production is a blend of comedy, drama and romance that'll leave you cheering from the stands. Learn More

A World Premiere by David Mitchell Robinson
Directed by Judith Ivey
Jeff is determined to do right by his daughter on the night of her 23rd birthday. But first he has to figure out where his daughter lives. And find an open pet store. And navigate his Oldsmobile over the Mississippi past the wrecked 35W Bridge. Oh, and stop for a drink. Just one — this time.
A portrait of a flawed man on a collision course with fate one cold Minneapolis winter night, Carapace is the latest winner of the Kendeda Graduate Playwriting Competition, identifying the best new American playwrights and bringing their work to Atlanta.
“It’s rare that I read a script that I simply can’t put down, but that is exactly what happened when I read Carapace,” director Judith Ivey said in a statement. “In addition to being a thrilling ride, it raises beautiful questions about parenting and the connections we make — and fail to make — at the times we need help the most.”
