Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Of all American popular sports, slow-paced, detail-oriented, and poetic baseball might be the most Shakespearean.

The pastime collides with the storied scribe in Friendly People Productions' Bardball and Other Plays, a trio of comedic shorts by Cindy Brown, Drew Derrix Templeton, and New Times contributor Julie Peterson at Herberger Theater Center.

On stage through Thursday, August 2, Brown's Bardball finds a man attempting to use ol' Will to to his advantage, Templeton's The Baseball Connection places itself on an all-women's team, and Peterson puts lovey-dovey performers and 'ball nuts in one room for A Midsummer Night's Cold Beverage.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
