Bleacher Bums – Iowa State University Theatre

conceived by Joe Mantegna, written by The Organic Theatre Company

In the bleachers at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, die-hard Cub fans root for their team. Members of the group include a sun-worshipper, a blind man who follows the game by transistor radio, a professional gambler, a husband and wife, a nerd, and a little kid.

There is a lot to watch, even, on occasion, the game. Maybe this year the Cubs will go all the way!

September 24 and 25 and October 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. and September 26 and October 3 at 7:30 p.m.
