Shelby Company Presents

Sousepaw: A Baseball Story

The heartbreaking true story of George Edward "Rube" Waddell - the greatest lefty pitcher of the deadball era. 

The play begins in a ratty, Texas hotel where the down-and-out former ball player is awaiting his last chance at the big leagues. He hires the Reptile Girl from the local circus to keep him company, and sober. They share a long night of secrets, pain and past regrets. 

After playing to sold-out houses in Minneapolis, Indianapolis and San Francisco, Shelby Company proudly brings this heartbreaking true story to Brooklyn for an immersive theatrical experience.


A play by Jonathan A. Goldberg

directed by Courtney Ulrich

starring James B. Kennedy and Christina Pumariega
