At First Sight: Bowling for Beginners

By Diana Grisanti

Directed by Jenny McKnight

Now in its tenth year, At First Sight will feature two new plays by M.F.A. playwright Jayne Deely and Visiting Assistant Professor of playwriting, Diana Grisanti. In the Festival’s culminating weekend it includes scenes by undergraduate writers and a staged reading of a new play by our first-year M.F.A. playwright. Students are joined by the Katy Bigge Kestner Festival Guest Artists, industry professionals who provide their insight and expertise throughout the weekend.

In Diana Grisanti’s Bowling for Beginners, they train, they bowl, they attend class, they climb Jacob’s Ladder, and then they do it all again the next day. Bowling for Beginners is a theatrical exploration of a world inhabited by championship female athletes in a sport with few spectators. But once you understand the game, you'll learn what it takes to win.
