Stages Repertory Theatre presents Balls
It’s 1973, and Houston’s Astrodome is playing host to one of the biggest pop cultural events of all time as Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs face-off in 'The Battle of the Sexes' tennis match. Created in conjunction with New York‘s acclaimed One Year Lease Theater Company, Balls is a spectacular new work that bounces one of the most memorable tennis events of all-time off the cultural debates it ignited.
Co-written by Tony award nominee Bryony Lavery and Edinburgh Stage award winner Kevin Armento, Balls embraces OYL’s high-intensity physical groove and features a shot-by-shot re-imagining of the entire match, in a carnival-like atmosphere. This world premiere is must-see theater from one of the nation’s most promising new companies.
