In Association with Iron Age Theatre The Anthracite Gridiron The Story of the Pottsville Maroons and the NFL by Dr. Ray Saraceni Directed and Designed by Randall Wise and John Doyle  Sunday, October 23 2:00 p.m. Tickets: $10.00    The Anthracite Gridiron is a brisk, funny and lyrical two-act play that celebrates the unique achievement of the 1925 Pottsville Maroons, as well as the grit and pride, moral bravery and moxie that characterized 1920s Pottsville specifically and the coal regional generally.
