Actors Theatre of Indiana’s "Rounding Third"

September 1, 2010

Sept. 3-26
Carmel Community Playhouse at Clay Terrace

Youth sports have a long history of bringing together parents who might otherwise never meet. That’s the foundational idea in Richard Dresser’s play, in which a tough-as-nails, blue collar coach finds himself at philosophical odds with his new assistant, a businessman with a let-the-kids-have-fun attitude. If it sounds like “The Odd Couple” on a baseball diamond, well, what would be so wrong with that?

The production comes courtesy of Actors Theatre of Indiana, the professional company set to move into the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel next season. For now, it’s using the Clay Terrace digs of the Carmel Community Players. Details here.
