Satchel Paige and the Kansas City S...

A great baseball town deserves a great baseball story.

An exciting and inspirational new play from Trey Ellis and Ricardo Khan, the creators of Fly! In the 1947 Negro Leagues, Satchel Paige is the king of baseball: a charismatic, superstar pitcher despite his advancing age. But as Jackie Robinson wraps his first historic season in the majors, Paige finds his own fame eclipsed and his desire for greater respect increasingly frustrated by the barriers all around him. A story of passion and perseverance, this jazz-infused drama paints a vivid picture of America on the brink of great change — on and off the baseball diamond.
