The First Run Theater presents "The Last Memory of an Ol' Brownie Fan" by Bill Borst, Founder of the St. Louis Browns Fan Club. (Click on picture to enlarge)
It's the summer of 1979, some where in South St. Louis, and an old man is helping his granddaughter with a school project. Despite his increasing forgetfulness, he dictates the events of his life on a tape recorder.
As he talks, he can’t help intertwining his life memories with those of his favorite baseball team, the St. Louis Browns. His life’s ups and downs mirror the record and adventures of this one time St. Louis team. This one-man play is a tour de force for a single actor, as it deals with life, aging, baseball, being a die-hard fan of a losing team, and the loss of precious memories.
"The Last Memory of an Ol' Brownie Fan" will be presented on September 24-26 and October 1-3, 2009 by the First Run Theater produced at the "Sound Stage" one of the three theaters in the Crestwood Mall. Availability of tickets, prices and times will be announced within the next few weeks. We will update this article with more information as it becomes available.
