About this Event

FLEX

by Candrice Jones

directed by Delicia Turner Sonnenberg

Presented in partnership with Actors Theatre of Louisville (Humana Festival)

It’s 1997 and the WNBA is changing the game. Every player on Plainnole’s Lady Train basketball team now dreams of going pro—but first, they’ll have to navigate the pressures of being young, black and female in rural Arkansas. With all the adrenaline and swagger of a four-quarter game, Candrice Jones’s powerful new play celebrates the fierce athleticism of women’s basketball.

PLEASE NOTE: This staged-reading is presented online. A link to a ZOOM webcast will be emailed to registrants 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
