Purchasing tickets to The Jammer will be the best decision you've made in a while. Maybe ever...I don't know you. Side-splittingly funny, action-packed, and delightfully crass, this show could give your grandmother a serious case of the vapors....continued

The Jammer _resurrects that greatest of American entertainments, the Roller Derby: half sport, half show, all action. In just over an hour, The Jammer packs multiple roller-derby sequences, a riot, a roller-coaster ride, vomit, spit, blood, sex and love. In short, it’s the King Lear of roller derby plays.

The show features Pine Box Ensemble members Josh Odor and Greg Rothman with Bill Bannon, Sara Gorsky, Kersten Haile, Amy Jean Johnson, Michael Kevin Martin, Miguel Nunez, Levenix Riddle and Eliza Shin.

_This play includes adult language and situations. _
