Diamond Girls
  • Adelaide Fringe

Join actress Amanda Trapp as she portrays -- in addition to 18 other characters! -- three Saskatchewan gals who played in Philip K. Wrigley's All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (1943-54) in this fast-paced, one-woman show."Rather than a rehash of the film 'A League of Their Own,' this play brings to life Canadian prairie women who made up a disproportionate percentage of the league. . . 'Diamond Girls' presents nuanced, poignant portraits of fierce players, who nonetheless needed to ask their husbands' permission to pursue their dreams. Fun, funny, and brought a tear to my eye." - CBC Manitoba
