It's 1973, and Houston's Astrodome is playing host to one of the biggest cultural events of all time as Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs face-off in The Battle of the Sexes tennis match.

From the creative team behind please excuse my dear aunt sally, Balls is a high-intensity theatrical retelling of this unforgettable match and the cultural debates it ignited around sexism, women-in-sport, and equality. One Year Lease's signature high-energy physical style embraces the carnival atmosphere of the original event, and features a shot-by-shot re-imagining of the entire match.

"A captivating visceral spectacle from end to end...the physicality of the performance is staggering." - Houstonian Magazine
