One Year Lease Theater Company brings the 1973 Battle of the Sexes tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs to the stage in Balls, written by Kevin Armento & Bryony Lavery.
Part sport, part disco, all carnival, Balls explodes across time, space and genre, fully embracing the circus atmosphere of the original event, and bouncing this most memorable tennis match of all-time off of the cultural debates it ignited around sexism, women-in-sport & equality.
Cleverly devised...and executed perfectly!" - The New York Times
Balls is a must-see show. Gather your group and come courtside to see Riggs vs King. Experience the epic sports event and its social impact that has gone well beyond the world of tennis." - Broadway World
