Lincoln Center Theater announces New York premiere of ‘FLEX’

Lincoln Center Theater has announced the New York premiere of FLEX by Candrice Jones, which will begin previews on Friday 23 June 2023 and open on Thursday 20 July at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre.

The production is directed by LCT Resident Director Lileana Blain-Cruz.

FLEX tells the story of a girls’ high school basketball team from Plainnole, Arkansas. It’s 1997, and the women of the Lady Train team are inspired by the successes of the WNBA. With aspirations of going pro, they must first navigate the pressures of being young, Black, and female in rural Arkansas. Will their fouls off the court tear their team apart? Or can they keep their pact to stick together through hell or high water?

This powerful play by Candrice Jones celebrates the fierce athleticism of women’s basketball with all the adrenaline and swagger of a four-quarter game.

Complete casting and design team for FLEX will be announced at a later date.
