Winner of the Kennedy Center’s Jean Kennedy Smith Playwriting Award, Colossal is an epic theatrical event, in which director Kevin Moriarty will create an intensely physical production of this spectacular and deeply moving new play. Featuring full contact choreography and a drumline, the story centers on a gay University of Texas football player, struggling to move forward in the wake of a catastrophic spinal injury. About love, ability, and extraordinary feats of strength, Colossal is both a celebration and critical examination of our nation’s most popular form of theater. Contains adult themes and strong language. Recommended for ages 16 and above.
For this production the Wyly Theatre will be transformed into a football field, creating a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our patrons. Seating will be General Admission. Patrons will be seated according to the area number located in the middle of their ticket. Area 1 will be seated first and we will continue through Area 4. Please listen carefully for the announcements and look for signs stating which area is being seated.
The production runs 90 minutes with no intermission. There will be no late seating, and if you leave the theater space for any reason during the show you will not be readmitted. Food and drink will be permitted in the performance.
COLOSSAL was first produced in a rolling world premiere by Olney Theatre Center (Maryland), Mixed Blood Theatre (Minneapolis), Dallas Theater Center (Texas) and Southern Rep (Louisiana) as part of the National New Play Network’s Continued Life program.
