Stage Aurora is looking for dynamic African American dramatic actors to play Gabriel (40s); Rose (40s), Raynell (6-9), and Cory (late teens/ early 20s).

Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy's bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball. James Earl Jones won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play in 1987.
