Sometimes basketball is the only way out. Even for a girl. Even in the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. When a mysterious young man gets off the train in Poor Prairie, everybody talks, especially the high school girls looking for a meal ticket – the marryin’ kind. He’s from Poor Prairie, but nobody knows where he’s been and his story has some gaps. A few things are clear, though – he’s teaching at the high school, he knows basketball, and most importantly, he has the only inflated basketball in town. As for that meal ticket? He may just have that after all, if he can get his Poor Prairie girls team good enough to sell a few tickets. And keep them out of the sights of the Committee on Play, Girls Division (it’s the 1930s – when basketball was “dangerous” for girls). Described by the AJC as “a ferocious talent with a promising career in store”, former Alliance/Kendeda winner and playwright of The Fairytale Lives of Russian Girls, Meg Miroshnik returns with this exciting world premiere.
