The Girls of Summer
In the mid-40s, the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League was founded as a home for women players. But only white women. For all of its 11 years, the league denied black women who played baseball—such as Toni Stone and Mamie "Peanut" Johnson—the chance to play. In The Girls of Summer, award-winning playwright Layon Gray takes a revisionist's look at this nugget of history, asking what would have happened if black women had had their own league. On stage, his dream team faces off against a team from the AAGPBL, creating a lens that brings American culture itself into sharper focus. And for its imagination and emotional resonation, The Girls of Summer has earned fans: it received an NAACP award in 2006 and its 10-plus productions include a sold-out run at the National Black Theatre Festival.
