Description

51 years ago, Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter on LSD.

This fall, Mirrorbox presents the world premiere of a brand new play that explores the fascinating life & career of this revolutionary pitcher, once known as the “Muhammad Ali of Baseball.”

This Is Not a Game of Baseball provides a complex look at the trailblazing former major league pitcher, Dock Ellis. The man's most (in)famous accomplishment becomes a springboard for exploring Ellis' incredible life story, including his eventual turn to sobriety and second career as a life-saving drug counselor. It is a memory play about a man who tragically can barely remember his greatest professional feat.

This Is Not a Game of Baseball features the return of many favorite Mirrorbox Theatre performers and stars Caleb "The Negro Artist" Rainey (Exit Strategy, Luna Gale) as Dock Ellis, the most revolutionary pitcher in baseball.

This Is Not a Game of Baseball was developed thanks to the generous support of Beth Moriarty & Michael Langan, and the Iowa Arts Council/Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.
