    The Sweetest Swing in Baseball

    "As a play crafter, Gilman is a wonder. Every scene, every character -- every speech, practically -- contains a surprise. The surprises build to neatly engineered climaxes and conclusions. But the neatness is all technique. Emotionally and morally, Gilman's work is confrontational, transgressive, unsettling -- and uniquely admirable." - Joe Adcock

    After a disastrous gallery showing, artist Dana Fielding attempts suicide, and lands in a mental ward. But when she learns her health insurance will only pay for a 10-day stay, Dana cooks up a scheme with two fellow patients to fool the doctors into believing she's psychotic. Without knowing much about him, she takes on the personality of troubled baseball star Darryl Strawberry. Known for having the 'sweetest swing in baseball,' Strawberry also struggled with the darker side of rejection by fans and the effort to make a comeback.

    With hilarious dialogue and rich characters, Gilman takes on the state of health insurance, the legacy of fame, and ways in which we recraft our identity.
