Five relief pitchers and a third string catcher sweat out an afternoon in the Boston Red Sox bullpen, shaky in the knowledge that one of them is about to be replaced by a hot shot rookie. A fast talking rock and roller, a slow thinker whose knowledge of baseball is encyclopedic, a Cy Young award winning southpaw, a possibly alcoholic Harvard grad, a black hipster who never changes his shirt, an irascible old knuckle baller close to retirement, and a catcher whose wife left him in the third inning provide a rollicking look at sports' relationships. Bullpen has played to laughing and cheering audiences across the country in productions tailored to the hometown team.
Bullpen was first presented at Theater/Theater - Stage Two in Los Angeles on July 4, 1984. It was directed by Jeff Murray. It later opened at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts on January 28, 1985.
