This is the play I wrote for 24 hour theatre at the Pacific Theatre in Vancouver, BC. The prompt that I received was the flavor “Sour” and I was also given a lemon. As I was brainstorming, I kept rolling the lemon around in my hand, and I would occasionally smell it. Then the idea popped into my head of an ex-baseball player that maybe had a short lived, tragically ending career, but still held onto a baseball all the time, occasionally smelling it, almost in an obsessive-compulsive way. So that’s where it started, and here’s where it ended.
