What baseball fan wouldn’t love to travel back to 1947 to witness first-hand the drama of Jackie Robinson’s historic season with the Brooklyn Dodgers?

That’s exactly what happens to a boy named Joey Stoshack.  A rare baseball card is his ticket for time travel to Branch Rickey’s office on the very day that Jackie Robinson is signed as the first black man to play for the major leagues.  The extraordinary twist:  Joey is now black, too.

An exciting play that illuminates Jackie Robinson’s courage and dignity in the face of cruel racial prejudice, Jackie and Me will have you on the edge of your seat as we all root for the man who changed the face of the game.  Play Ball!

Presented by Metro Theater Company and Edison Theatre (Washington University).
