“Three Strikes to First”
Written by UI Master of Fine Arts graduate Quinn Hatch. Looking to escape a failing marriage, Matt, general manager for the Seattle Sun Dodgers, finds himself in Peoria, Ariz. He’s in town early putting the finishing touches on player contracts, but despite his efforts, Matt’s varied past is difficult to dodge. Especially when an old player has just received the publisher’s green light to write a rather revealing book outlining steroid use on the team. The book is all access. He’s naming names, and one of them is Matt’s new star first baseman. Performances are Jan. 31-Feb. 2 and Feb. 7-9 at 7:30 p.m., with matinees Feb. 3 and 10 at 2 p.m.
