Girls Of Summer centers on 1940s female baseball leagues and an all-negro female team. In 1945 Chicago, a group of African American women are assembled to play an exhibition game against the Rockford Peaches, an all-white female team and champions of the AAGPBL (All American Girls Professional Baseball League). Lead by their hard-nosed coach, racism, sexism, deceit, and betrayal are brought to light as this powerful drama unveils the hidden story beneath the surface. Written and directed by playwright Layon Gray, writer of the Off Broadway hit plays Black Angels Over Tuskegee and Kings Of Harlem.
