Genre: Solo Performance
by Paul Boocock, directed by Mary Catherine Burke

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 reminds us of inspiring American attributes worth fighting
