Tamara L. Honesty Designs Set for World Premiere of "Banned from Baseball"

Kent State University School of Theatre and Dance professor Tamara L. Honesty is helping bring one of Major League Baseball's most notable controversies to life in the Human Race Theatre Company's world premiere production of "Banned from Baseball," written by Patricia O'Hara and directed by Margarett Perry. Honesty serves as scenic designer for the production which runs September 6-23, 2018 at Human Race's venue in Dayton, OH.

The play explores the 1989 "battle for Major League Baseball's soul" when Cincinnati Reds legend and then-manager Pete Rose was accused of betting on baseball games, including those of his own team. Amidst mounting evidence against  him and his assertions of his innocence, Rose meets face to face with National League Commissioner Bart Giamatti for a reckoning that could see Rose banned from baseball forever.

Honesty, a member of the School of Theatre and Dance's faculty since 2016, has worked with Human Race Theatre Company since 2004 when she joined the theatre as set dresser for a production of "The Odd Couple." Last summer, Honesty served as the scenic designer for Human Race's world premiere production of "Family Ties."
