About this show

It's 1973, and Houston's Astrodome is playing host to one of the biggest cultural events of all time: Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs face off in a "battle of the sexes" tennis match. Balls is a high-intensity theatrical retelling of this unforgettable match and the cultural debates it ignited about sexism, women in sports, and equality. One Year Lease's signature high-energy physical style embraces the carnival atmosphere of the original event and features a shot-by-shot rendition of the entire match.
