“A ripped-from-the-headlines drama” —Minneapolis Star Tribune  

Description

redshirts explores a sports scandal involving college football players at a Division I university and investigates the multifaceted social behavior of student athletes. Eighteen-year-old Dante Green is an all-star running back at Tennessee Southern, but is less than stellar in the classroom. His academic integrity is called into question when an English professor accuses Dante of plagiarism. Suddenly caught between pride and insecurity, Dante, along with his coach and teammates, are at a moral crossroads. The line between right and wrong is blurred as these characters tackle the conflict between commercial success and academic integrity.

This production marks the world premiere.
