A play for sports fans created in part by sports fans can be seen at U of L this weekend when Plays: A Play goes on.

Plays: A Play will continue on April 19, 20, and 22 at 8 p.m. each night.  Shows on April 21 and 22 are to happen at 3 p.m. each day.  All performances will go on inside the Thrust Theatre, located on the U of L campus at 2314 S. Floyd Street (same intersection as the McDonaldS).

Tickets for each show are $12 for students, $8 for students, and $8 for senior citizens.  Ticket information can be found by calling 502-852-6814 or at louisville.edu/theatrearts.  Some tickets may also be available at the door.

Plays: a Play features an alternative sports universe where some of its inhabitants try to save a university from being taken over by a corporate sponsor.  Among the characters are corporate ogre Big Sweety, pop star Lady Sugah, and a superhuman Tom Brady-like character named Bradyman.

The production came about after conversations with Louisville-area sports fans and players last spring as part of U of L's performance and community-based arts class.  Amy Steiger, leader of the class, directed the production.
