It's 1945 and baseball history is about to be made. A black, female baseball team is set to play an exhibition game against the reigning champs, the Rockford Peaches. Two weeks into their training, however, their coach is found dead. Inspired by the film A League of Their Own, The Girls of Summer takes a look at baseball from the perspective of those who were left out of mainstream sports. It's also a powerful drama of racism and betrayal that's brought to light as the hidden story beneath the surface is revealed. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“Louisa Bradshaw is riveting! Her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe, frozen in time, excites as I’ve rarely seen happen on stage. Lissa Moira’s direction & dramaturgy are stunning. It perfectly captures the thoughts of playwright Walt Stepp, on a side of Marilyn never expressed before.” —Joe Franklin, Bloomberg Radio
“The great success of the show is that Louisa Bradshaw presents Monroe as a rather ordinary woman who just cannot figure out why she became so famous. She looks at her from the outside & sees a plain & troubled woman hurled into a worldwide stardom that she could not handle.” —History News Network
“In Walt Stepp’s Siren’s Heart we witness a provocative, intelligent, soul-searching woman. Louisa Bradshaw gives a tour-de-force performance… she does not attempt to impersonate Marilyn; she embodies Norma Jean & shares her life with us. Lissa Moira directs with verve & purpose!” —Hi! Drama
