Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative
Aronoff Center Fifth Third Bank Theatre [Downtown]

Bleachers is a romp back into some local and national history of “America’s Pastime,” enhanced by some very sing-able tunes—as if Roger Miller had had season tickets to Crosley Field. Baseball’s uniqueness has given it a special place in the life of our nation. Just about every other major sport—football, basketball, soccer, tennis—is played “horizontally,” from side to side. Baseball alone features circular patterns that keep it interesting despite its more leisurely pace than the aforementioned. That’s why a visit to the ballpark is as much social occasion as a spectators’ event.
Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative (CPI) is a grassroots, non-profit arts organization of Tri-State playwrights, directors, actors, and theater supporters dedicated to developing new plays written by local playwrights. CPI strives to provide a forum for playwrights to explore the possibilities contained within their work by providing a community of playwrights within which individual initiative can seek its fullest expression.
