OP Dialogues: On the Basis of Sex – Competition, Title IX, and Billie Jean

Journey through the intricacies of competition, delving into the innate human desire to compete and its dynamic intersection with feminism and representation in sports. Join us in celebrating the enduring legacy of tennis icon Billie Jean King and unraveling the profound impact of Title IX on the ever-evolving landscape of sports and beyond. This thought-provoking dialogue promises to shed light on the diverse facets of competition and gender equality, as exemplified in OP’s upcoming production, Birds & Balls. To add to the excitement, the event will feature a musical preview by the acclaimed jazz artist Tiffany Austin, who also takes center stage in this hilarious new production.
