    Scapegoat Theatre Collective

    Scapegoat Theatre Collective is proud to present. . .Take Me Out ! ! !

    This smash hit, by Richard Greenberg, is winner of the Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Play! In it, sports and sexual politics collide when a star baseball player "outs" himself in a press conference. With both humor and hard-hitting questions about masculinity, sexuality, and race, Take Me Out hits a home run that invariably delights baseball fans and theater-goers alike!

    Darren Lemming: "Oh, so you had this sorta neo-comfy image floatin' through your head, I see. Kinduva Hallmark card with sodomy. Sorry. Not happenin'.....Maybe someday."

    Mason: "Play is suspended for a celebration. A man rounds four bases, and if he's with the home team, the crowd has a catharsis. And from the way he runs, you learn something about the man. And from the way they cheer, you learn something about the crowd....And it seems to me that to conduct this ceremony not before a game or after a game but in the very heart of a game is...quite...well, does any other game do that? That's baseball."
