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 as they discover value in their individual paths, will they be brought closer together or driven apart?

This production contains strong language and references to drug and alcohol use.

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.
