Cousins Sam and Jaycee grew up together in a small Wisconsin town. Sam, who sharpened her bowling skills at the local alley, is now heading to college with a bowling scholarship. But Jaycee’s future isn’t looking so bright. As the young women and their friends face adulthood, the alley becomes a place to celebrate, mourn and forge new identities. But can their bonds survive even as their paths diverge? And is success always earned, or is it sometimes a matter of luck?
Twilight Bowl was commissioned by The Big Ten Theatre Consortium as part of the New Play Initiative. The Consortium has commissioned a series of plays from outstanding female playwrights featuring excellent age-appropriate roles for young women.
