GIRL GONE: OR BEFORE A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN Opens Off-broadway This Month

From the writer and director of the Off-Broadway hit play Black Angels Over Tuskegee, playwright Layon Gray explores women in baseball with his latest work Girl Gone: Or Before A League Of Their Own. ‘Set in 1945, before there was ‘ A League Of Their Own,’ a group of girls were placed together to see if such a league could work. Two weeks before this team was to make its exhibition, the coach is mysteriously found dead leaving the girls to face this big event alone.
