A Short Play by Allison Fradkin
2 female identifying
Approximate Playing Time: 18 minutes

During World War II, it was a woman's patriotic prerogative to embrace a man's job. The War enabled women to experience a change of pace and, for members of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, a change of base. Josephine and Penny, members of the South Bend Blue Sox team, are in the backyard of their hosts’ home, rehearsing a colossally campy—and alarmingly astute—skit lampooning the League’s fervent focus on femininity. But when Josephine and Penny develop a war bond of their own, it's hardly the kind the government—let alone the League—had in mind. Will the gals take a crack at a romance that, like a baseball, won't be seamless? Or will they take the base path of least resistance and prioritize the game over the dame? $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $20 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
