It sounds like a play about baseball, but it is really about two loners who meet at the crack of dawn in front of Yankee Stadium. Act One, Pennant Fever, was originally produced in 1980 by the Los Angeles Actors Theatre. The LA Times called it "touchingly comic" with "delicious dialogue" and Variety called it "wonderfully funny." Thirty-eight years later, Act Two, Home Plate, completes this romantic comedy which follows two lonely people who meet in front of Yankee Stadium through the course of their courtship and a 28-year marriage.
