About This Show

The Workshop Theater Company presents the solo show Stealing Home by Raymond Alvin, directed by Holli Harms as the first show of its season. Set in Brooklyn in the summer of 1957, the performance features Mr. Alvin portraying 14 separate characters. Blistering heat, rumors that the Dodgers are deserting the borough along with a beautiful divorcee who recently moves in are all elements that bring the neighborhood to a slow boil. Suspicions arise as rumors circulate about the woman’s infidelities. A boy of nine who comes from a turbulent home is befriended by the woman – who turns out to be his next door neighbor. What really happened on September 21, 1957 and the events leading up to it unfold as told through the boy’s eyes and as the man he has now become.
