Episode 5: 16 Inch by Ken Green (Stream here)
In this episode we listen in on a neighborhood softball game with surprisingly long roots, a diverse roster which captures a time and place in Chicago, and one infallible rule: Softballs must be 16 inches across. No exceptions.
We talk with the playwright of 16 Inch, Ken Green, who came to Boston from Chicago, about importing a storytelling series, the proper Chicago accent, whether a softball field can serve as a theatre stage, and whether or not you can save a shoveled out parking spot.
Remember: Real men play 16 Inch Softball.
