At the start of the summer of 1847, television was brand new, the sound barrier had not been broken,and baseball was a white man's game. By the time the fall arrived, all that had changed:
President Truman addressed the nation for the first time on RV, Chuck Yeager flew faster than any man ever had, and Jackie Robinson because the first African-American to play major league baseball. This new play with music by Mad River Theatre Works depicts the events that shaped Jackie Robinson's character and his struggle to gain acceptance and the tremendous obstacles he overcame on his way to changing the face of our national past time and our nation.
