59E59 Theaters: "The Undertaking"

The Undertaking is a "morbidly funny" and "thought-provoking" (The New York Times, Critic's Pick) playful and idiosyncratic take on the classical trip to the land of the dead. Drawing on The Civilians' (Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play, Gone Missing) exploration into the anxieties and mysteries of mortality, the play takes the idea of the recorded interview and pushes it into surprising (and personal) new places.

It's 1973, and Houston's Astrodome is playing host to one of the biggest cultural events of all time as Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs face-off in The Battle of the Sexes tennis match. From the creative team behind Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally, Balls is a high-intensity theatrical retelling of this unforgettable match and the cultural debates it ignited around sexism, women-in-sport, and equality. One Year Lease's signature high-energy physical style embraces the carnival atmosphere of the original event, and features a shot-by-shot re-imagining of the entire match.
