Welcome to THE ROSE THEATRE CO's Reading Series | FIRST DRAFT

THE  2018|19  SEASON

BALLS OUT by Chris Stezin

Darla Marini is supporting three worthless ex-husbands, so she'll do whatever it takes to hang on to her job as a Division 1 softball coach. Patrick DeBodean has just been cut from the baseball team, and he'll do whatever he can to stay at Southwest Iowa State Tech. Ginnie, the athletic director, will do whatever she wants to get out of a nowhere job in a nowhere town. Together they hit on an entirely deceitful, thoroughly reprehensible, and quintessentially modern solution to their problems. Comedy, Sports Fantasia. With Dream Ballets.

We love new plays...

THE ROSE THEATRE CO's Reading Series |  FIRST DRAFT celebrates the idea that new plays have an important place in the future of American theater and that audiences are an integral part of the process. That's why all our new play readings are free-of-charge and available at friendly accessible venues.

Over a dozen seasons, THE ROSE THEATRE CO's Reading Series has been lucky to work with some of the most vibrant playwrights in the country. We've debuted over 45 new plays with more than half receiving full productions in DC, on Broadway and around the globe.
