Spring Street International School presents, “The Field Project.” The show runs Thursday–Saturday, April 18–20, 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 21, 2 p.m. at the San Juan Community Theatre. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.

Directed by Krista Strutz, the 90-minute show consists of a play and a comedy sketch: “The Wolves” and “Who’s on First?”

“The Wolves,” by Sarah Delappe: Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. A girls’ indoor soccer team warms up. From the safety of their suburban stretch circle, the team navigates big questions and wages tiny battles with all the vim and vigor of a pack of adolescent warriors. A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.

“Who’s on First?” is a comedy routine made famous by Abbott and Costello. The premise of the sketch is that Abbott is identifying the players on a baseball team for Costello, but their names and nicknames can be interpreted as non-responsive answers to Costello’s questions. For example, the first baseman is named “Who”; thus, the utterance “Who’s on first” is ambiguous between the question (“Which person is the first baseman?”) and the answer (“The name of the first baseman is ‘Who’”).
