Safe At Home
Created by Gabriel Greene and Alex Levy
Directed by Jack Reuler
Performed at CHS Field in St. Paul
in partnership with the Saint Paul Saints
March 7-12, 2017
This 18-character, 9-scene thriller uses baseball to examine flawed U.S. immigration policies, racial politics, America’s obsession with celebrity, and the collision of personal ethics with massive entertainment and media dollars.
Audience members will journey for 90 minutes in small groups throughout the St. Paul Saints stadium, encountering scenes in a locker room, press box, luxury suite, and men’s room. While venturing into stadium spaces rarely visited by the public, they will be voyeurs into the intimate conversations of umpires, managers, mascots, politicians, fans, vendors, and players, performed by a multi-national cast.
Safe At Home is a treat for theater lovers, baseball aficionados, thrill seekers, and the simply curious. The show marks Mixed Blood's 17th sports play (including Ali, The History of Bowling, Take Me Out, Colossal, and The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity), demonstrating the truth of Sports Illustrated’s feature of Mixed Blood as the most sports-oriented theater in America. As is the case with all of Mixed Blood’s work, Safe At Home is accessible for all patrons.
SAFE AT HOME FAQs
What’s the show experience like?
Plan for 90 minutes of walking and standing. The route includes stairs; alternate paths are available for patrons as necessary. Safe At Home is recommended for audiences 13 and older due to adult themes, swearing, and racial slurs. If you have specific questions about content, please contact the box office.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing and shoes, since you’ll be on the move and standing during each scene. You’ll probably want to keep your coat – while all scenes are indoors, there are some brief trips outdoors between scenes. Large bags or packages will be held for you at the box office while you’re seeing the show.
How does ticketing work?
Audiences see the show in groups of approximately 25, with a new group starting every 10 minutes. If your friends buy tickets for the same show time, you will experience the show together.
Shows start right on time – if you’re late, we will try to accommodate you in the next performance time with available space.
**The box office will be at CHS Field, not Mixed Blood. Radical Hospitality, will call, and ticket purchases will happen at our CHS Field box office.**
Is the show accessible?
Of course! The entire performance is wheelchair-accessible. We will offer an Audio Described performance on Sunday, March 12 at 2pm and an ASL Interpreted performance on Sunday, March 12 at 1:30.
As always, Mixed Blood offers Radical Hospitality—no cost admission on a first come, first served basis, starting two hours before the performances’ start time. If you have any access needs, please contact the box office.
