When an artist suffers a personal crisis and lands in a mental ward, she is coached by fellow patients on how to fool the doctors into extending her stay by pretending she thinks she’s troubled baseball player Darryl Strawberry.

The run will include an exhibit by local artists and a reception at 6:00 PM on opening night, January 28.  The reception is free and open to the public; however, tickets are required to see the performance.

THE SWEETEST SWING IN BASEBALL is directed by Norman Metz, produced by Patricia Hibbits and stage managed by Kate McNally and features Dena Daniel, Sarah Pharaon, Jeff Taylor, Tracey Randinelli, Cynthia Ross, Brad Harris, Tom McNally, Sandra Eismann and John Mendlovitz.
