'Boococks House of Baseball,' at The Flea Downstairs

The Flea Theater present the Saribrett production of Boocock�s House of Baseball, written and performed by Paul Boocock, at The Flea Downstairs from the 30 Jun - 23 Jul 2005.

Boocock�s House of Baseball examines contemporary American politics through the vehicle of baseball. Dismayed over today�s government for the few at the expense of many, Boocock turns to baseball for guidance because it is the final frontier of democracy; the rules still apply equally to all participants.

Boocock�s House of Baseball

tells the redemptive stories of Derek Jeter, Reggie Jackson, Pete Rose, Jason Giambi, Darryl Strawberry and Doc Gooden � not to mention the family-swapping Yankee pitchers Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich in a dynamic performance style that melds stand-up, movement based physical comedy, and monologues. It offers an optimistic alternative to the moral corruption that crowds today�s headlines.

Boocock�s House of Baseball is directed by Mary Catherine Burke, with set design by David Evans Morris, costumes by Jessica Gaffney, lighting by Jeff Croiter and sound by Jake Hall.
