Homerun (2003)

"Homerun" is a monologue about God and home runs that Susana Cook performs playing a guitar. The solo piece was inspired by a commentary by a famous baseball player that Susana saw on TV, in which the player presented home runs as "a God-giving thing." In the monologue, Susana humorously locates this "gift" in inadequate contexts like Argentina, where baseball is not a popular sport like in the United States; and she also imagines a female protagonist who, despite her talent, would not make it to the major league because of her gender. "Homerun" was part of "Rivers of Honey, Women's of Color Cabaret," held at WOW Theater Café in New York City.
