Synopsis

Ten-year-old Joey Stoshack is a headstrong young boy with a special talent for time travel. When Joey is assigned to write a report on an African American who has made an important contribution to society, he uses his special ability to go back to Brooklyn, New York, in 1947. He meets one of baseball's greatest players, Jackie Robinson. Joey plans on writing a prize-winning report, but he doesn't plan on a trip that will forever change his view of history and his definition of courage.

Media Reviews

"[Kids] learn about Jackie Robinson, racial discrimination and restraining one's temper to achieve a larger goal. … The show is truthful, fun and filled with worthy life lessons for kids." -Chicagocritic.com

"Moving … empowering … this is not a play about celebrity worship or mere historical awareness but a strikingly sophisticated exploration of what having a hero can do for a young man as well as what the admiration of a young man can do for a role model who doesn't yet know what that means and is just trying to hit a ball." -Chicago Tribune

"Robinson's powerhouse contribution to the game he loved, and to the American civil-rights movement, are well chronicled in Jackie & Me." -Seattle Times
