All-American Girls, which is billed as "the untold story of the all-Negro female baseball team in 1945 Chicago," officially opened Aug. 25 following previews that began Aug. 4 at the Actors Temple Theatre.

Penned by Layon Gray, the production runs in repertory with Gray's Black Angels Over Tuskegee.

The cast of All-American Girls features "One Life to Live" star Daphnee Duplaix and model Mari White as well as Setor Attipoe, Yasha Jackson, Ashley Jeffrey, Arlene McGruder, Chantal Nchako, Catherine Peoples and Antoinette Robertson. 

Gray's new play, according to press notes, is "a tale  [of ] racism, deceit and betrayal after the coach of an all-Negro female baseball team goes missing in 1945 Chicago. The drama captures an era in American history when women were called on to keep baseball alive as the men went off to fight in World War II."
