ABOUT THE SHOW

Sure to be the must-see new play of 2014, COLOSSAL is an extraordinary story of emotional and physical endurance, love, and family.  Structured like a football game (performed in four quarters with a pre-show training session and half-time show), COLOSSAL tells in vivid, physical flashback the story of Young Mike, a college football player who took a hit in a game that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Mike now relives the memory of his accident with the help of a live football squad onstage, finally confronting his demons in the play’s extremely powerful and uplifting conclusion.  Featuring Michael Patrick Thornton, star of ABC's Grey's Anatomy spin-off Private Practice.  Winner of the Kennedy Center’s Jean Kennedy Smith Playwriting Award.  (Recommended for ages 14 and up)

Colossal is a recipient of a 2014 Edgerton Foundation New American Plays award.

Colossal was first produced in a National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere by Olney Theatre Center (Olney, MD), Mixed Blood Theatre (Minneapolis, MN), Dallas Theater Center (Dallas, TX), Company One Theatre (Boston, MA), and Southern Rep Theatre (New Orleans, LA) with support from the National New Play Network's Continued Life of New Plays Fund.
