Synopsis

Girls in the Boat was inspired by the true stories of the U.S. women’s Olympic rowing team. A group of smart, fiery young women fight discrimination and prejudice to compete in the male-dominated sport of rowing, finding an unlikely ally in a taciturn men’s coach. Together, they confront ridicule and overcome obstacles. The women refuse to sit on a bus and wait their turn in a battle for gender equality in a sport that makes national news and takes them all the way to the world championships. Against the rhythm of their oars, these women forge bonds and overcome disagreements in their search for greatness. Despite their diverse backgrounds and politics, they literally pull together to reach their goals in a fast-paced drama that reminds us of what we can all do if we have a common purpose. As our heroines break barriers of race and gender, their newly minted U.S. women’s rowing team goes on to become the most winning sports team in American history.

Media Reviews

"The play, itself, has a lyrical rhythm, like the oars of the rowers, and it is fast-paced, engaging, funny, inspiring, emotional, and powerful.” –Ozaukee Living Local

“Audiences dare not blink or they might lose track of a gesture or a thread of a conversation.” –Shepherd Express

“For today’s teens, who are too young to comprehend public schools not offering girls sports teams, this play is something of an eye-opener. For the rest of us, it is a reminder of how far we have come, and how far we may yet have to go.” – Shepherd Express
