About Flex

After a world premiere in Arkansas, Candrice Jones's basketball drama Flex is traveling to New York and making Lincoln Center its home court. Get Flex tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

Flex is a play about the Lady Train, a fictional high school basketball team from Plainnole, Arkansas. The team's young women dream of going pro like their idols in the WNBA, but it's not an easy goal to reach. Being Black women in 1997 Arkansas presents its share of challenges, which are only intensified by interpersonal struggles — and the girls must work as a team on and off the court if they want to succeed.

Jones hails from Arkansas herself, and Flex had its world premiere in 2022 with the TheatreSquared company there. Her other works include Crackbaby and the Arkansas-based play showcase Re-Imagining the Self, which was active for four years. Jones's work centers on celebrating women in the American South.

She teams up with veteran New York director Lileana Blain-Cruz for Flex off Broadway. She has worked with Lincoln Center Theater multiple times before, having staged its Off-Broadway premiere of Marys Seacole and earned a Tony Award nomination for The Skin of Our Teeth off Broadway. In the past year, she has also directed the critically acclaimed musical Dreaming Zenzile and the newest musical from Pulitzer winner Michael R. Jackson, White Girl in Danger, both off Broadway.

Tickets to Flex in New York are on sale now.
