Tinker to Evers to Chance
May 4 - May 26, 2019
black box theater
It was 1908 when the Chicago Cubs last won the world series, a win owed to star players Tinker, Evers, and Chance. Despairing decades followed, but Nessa, a true Cubs fan, never gave up on her team. Now it’s 2003, and it looks like the impossible may just become possible again. Nessa’s daughter, Lauren, has traveled back to Chicago to take the ill Nessa to the (now-infamous) game six of the National League Championships — but when she arrives, Nessa is gone. Instead, Lauren finds R.J., her caretaker, and a score of lessons about love, life, and the relentless power of hope in the face of hopelessness.
