The Resolute is a coming-of-age adventure set just after the end of the Civil War, that imagines the intersection of famed astronomer Maria Mitchell in her first year teaching at Vassar College, and the bold young students who created America's first women's baseball team. A high energy, physical, ensemble play for six women that asks: In a time when a respectable young lady didn’t dare exercise her mind - let alone her body - can a seemingly simple game illuminate women's true selves and empower them to forge an unbreakable bond? The Resolute is about sisterhood, the transformative power of play, and who we choose to be when no one is watching.

    I caught the workshop production of THE RESOLUTE at the Wyoming Theater Festival, and I was thrilled to see an all female cast with six complex and compelling roles. The history is fascinating, the characters are clear and engaging, and the stakes in their lives leave so much at risk. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the performance. This would make a fantastic production at any theater, and with the majority of the cast being young, would also be great on college stages. Read and produce this play!!
