The Field Project
Direct­ed by Krista Strutz

The Field Project con­sists of a play and a com­e­dy sketch: The Wolves and Who’s on First?

The Wolves, by Sarah Delappe: Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls indoor soc­cer team warms up. From the safe­ty of their sub­ur­ban stretch cir­cle, the team nav­i­gates big ques­tions and wages tiny bat­tles with all the vim and vig­or of a pack of ado­les­cent war­riors. A por­trait of life, lib­er­ty, and the pur­suit of hap­pi­ness for nine Amer­i­can girls who just want to score some goals.

Who’s on First? is a com­e­dy rou­tine made famous by Abbott and Costel­lo. The premise of the sketch is that Abbott is iden­ti­fy­ing the play­ers on a base­ball team for Costel­lo, but their names and nick­names can be inter­pret­ed as non-respon­sive answers to Costel­lo’s ques­tions. For exam­ple, the first base­man is named “Who”; thus, the utter­ance “Who’s on first” is ambigu­ous between the ques­tion (“Which per­son is the first base­man?”) and the answer (“The name of the first base­man is ‘Who’ ”).

  1. Nice arti­cle, Tim. I“ve had an advance peek. It is fun and excit­ing… and thought pro­vok­ing. Thanks for sup­port­ing the school and the kids. I might know the director.
