Bang the Drum Slowly is the complex and realistic saga of star lefty pitcher Henry Wiggin. The moving and often funny story of how the terminal illness of one of Wiggin’s teammates affects a major league baseball team was first adapted into a live TV drama starring a very young Paul Newman in 1956; the film version was Robert DeNiro’s first major movie role. TACT will present Harris’ stage adaptation of the book just in time for the start of spring training.
Directed by Ellen Dempsey.
