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.
Approximately 1 hours and 15 minutes with no intermission.
