An ambitious new work from playwrights Gabriel Greene and Alex Levy looks at baseball’s expression of our social codes through the story of Victor Castillo, a Dominican Republic-born pitcher suspected of planning to use Game 7 of the World Series to make a political demonstration. Under this scenario Greene and Levy explore how baseball mirrors prevailing attitudes toward race, ethnicity, and celebrity. Making the presentation even more immersive, this world-premiere production from Mixed Blood Theatre will not only be staged at CHS Field (home of the Saint Paul Saints) but will move throughout the venue. Under the direction of Jack Reuler, audiences will tour the stadium, witnessing scenes enacted in the locker room, press box, luxury suites, and other spaces not generally open to the public. Featuring an 18-person cast, Safe at Home makes a strong argument that baseball remains America’s pastime by reflecting the sometimes fractious process of cultural change.
