In this folk/bluegrass musical, a Tennessee town that was rocked by the Civil War pins its hopes on a friendly game of baseball played by recently-returned soldiers of both armies. But when ex-Confederate discover they’ll be playing on the same team as a newly-freed slave, the tensions that boil over threaten to make the new peace more dangerous than the war ever was.
