Is baseball ready for an openly gay superstar?

Take Me Out explores what happens when a superstar player on a major-league baseball team announces that he is gay. What outfielder Darren Lemming receives is disarming—and often hilarious—candor from his teammates, manager, and agent. Setting his play entirely in the team's clubhouse and shower, playwright Richard Greenberg traps a dozen (often naked) men in one room with their most intimate thoughts and no place to hide.

Enter into this sheltered atmosphere a mid-season roster addition from outside the team's familial bubble. A rookie relief pitcher's unfiltered television interview opens a locker of complicated insights about masculinity, democracy, race, and identity for the twenty-first century.
