About this show

If "Adam's Rib" and "Moneyball" mated and begat a play, it might be "Skybox," a comedy of class warfare and the battle of the sexes that is set in the luxury box of a major league baseball park. In the play, a one-percenter named Richard Gunn, owner of a struggling Major League Baseball team, is caught canoodling with a young woman in the team's skybox by the Channel 8 Skycam. Being wealthy and influential, he's able to contain the news break, but not the accident that the young woman--his smart talking personal assistant, Kelly--has lost her diaphragm case among the cushions of the couch in the skybox. Her search for the item activates the suspicions of Richard's trophy wife, Rachel. The loyal stadium facilities manager stands ready to take the fall for his boss, but Rachel incites a confrontation that could bring down the whole ball club. The play lashes out wittily at the cheekyness of our moneyed class and the double standard that exists for men and women regarding adultery. It is filled with snappy repartee and role reversals.
