THE IMMORTALS

  • DC Black Theatre & Arts Festival

The Immortals is a full-length comdey where Jackie Robinson has just signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers. The other players in the Negro League sensing that his signing will open the floodgates for other Black ballplayers and tired of the mistreatment by their owners, decide to form their own team, (with the disapproval of their owner who they are still under contract). The best of the best from around the league join together to for the Immortals and take on all comers. Their aim is to showcase their talents for the Major Leagues, although the owners are doing everything in their power to stop them.
