"Some people have the ability -and the energy-not just to make the work, but to make sure it's put in exactly the right place, at the right moment. Some artists realize they have to spend as much time as it took them to get the idea in finding the way to show it, and the infrastructure to support it. And some artists just don't have that energy, and have to be taken care of, by art lovers or collectors, or the gallery system." Marina Abramovic
This dark comedy is the third collaboration between For Giving Productions and Red Thread Santa Fe. Previously we brought to Santa Fe THE COUNTRY HOUSE, and ALMOST MAINE.
Dana has come to a turning point in her personal and creative life. Her boyfriend has left her, but more importantly her last gallery showing was, to say the least, a disappointment.
Darryl Strawberry was given the title "the sweetest swing in baseball" and he too had a stunning fall from grace. How on earth do these seemingly separate worlds collide?
Rebecca Gilman's play centers on how fragile the artist's life is-one day you're on top of the world, enjoying success and acclaim, the next you're a failure, a disappointment to yourself and all you know.
"When I read THE SWEETEST SWING IN BASEBALL I thought how perfect for a city where galleries and artist represent a large part of our population. Every artist, gallery owner and anyone with a creative heart, will see parts of their life in this play." Janet Davidson, Director
