Don’t miss the show that has been described as “excellent and extremely bold,” “robustly satisfying,” “pleasurably intense,” and “a solid win”! Tickets are available at SISTIC.

“Take Me Out” stars  Juan Jackson as Darren Lemming, Hayden Tee as Mason Marzac, Tim Garner as Kippy Sunderstrom, Chris Bucko as Shane Mungitt, Paul Lucas as Skipper, Seth Adams as Toddy Koovitz, Kynan Francis as Jason Chenier, Johnny James as Davey Battle, Ren Robles as Rodriguez, Jejie Esguerra as Martinez, and Hiro Mizuhara as Takeshi Kawabata. It is directed by Paul Lucas and is produced by Tim Garner Productions.

Darren Lemming, the star centre fielder of the world champion New York Empires, is young, rich, famous, talented, handsome and so convinced of his popularity that when he casually announces he’s gay, he assumes the news will be readily accepted by everyone. It isn’t. Friends, fans and teammates react with ambivalence, and when the slipping Empires call up the young phenom Shane Mungitt to close their games, the ambivalence turns to violence. Angry, lonely, guilt-ridden and confused, Darren finds some unlikely solace in the form of friendship with his new business manager, Mason Marzac-a brilliant but repressed guy, who, as everyone around him copes with disenchantment, blooms in the ecstatic discovery of baseball.
