BALLS - Character Portraits
BALLS, a new play by Kevin Armento & Bryony Lavery, is an epic recreation of the 1973 Battle of the Sexes tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, commissioned and developed by One Year Lease Theater Company. The play premiered in Houston, TX in 2017 and had an Off-Broadway run in New York in 2018.
As part of the show's marketing campaign, I created ten character portraits in the style of Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs' original caricatures from 'The Match'. The portraits were used to introduce the cast on social media and promote the show.
