DetailsTake Me Out
is a rare, epic play, painted on a large canvas, dealing with major issues: sport, race and sexual politics. Darren Leeming is a young, iconic baseball star, living life large, male as can be and envied by everyone. He calls a press conference and, without telling anyone what he is about to do, he âcomes out to the waiting media. Take Me Out
chronicles the fall-out, as the ripples of his actions spread through the team, the media and across the nation. As latent prejudices emerge, Leeming is forced to re examine his ' untouchable' life as those around him confront their own demons.Performers Kevin Carroll, Dominic Fumusa, Gene Gabriel, Neal Huff, Robert Jimenez, Stephen Mendillo, Denis O'Hare, Kohl Sudduth, James Yaegash.
