Theatre Arlington presents The Sweetest Swing in Baseball
Dana Fielding is a hot commodity in the art world, but fear of failure after critical acclaim in her early career, and a recent disastrous gallery opening drives her to a suicide attempt. She finds herself in the mental ward in this quirky comedy, enjoying the structured days. When she finds out her health insurance will only pay for a 10-day stay, she cooks up a scheme with two fellow patients to fool the doctors into believing she’s psychotic. Without knowing much about him, she takes on the personality of the troubled baseball star, Darryl Strawberry, known for having the “sweetest swing in baseball.” Michael, an alcoholic, and Gary the stalker coach the artist in Strawberry’s stats, while she instructs the would-be killer in the finer points of negative space.
Appropriate for ages 16 and up. Adult language.
