The lights burn bright. The smell of turf hangs thickly in the air. The crowd erupts in thunderous applause. The beauty and brutality of football seduce Mike to stray from the path his father had mapped out for him, but when a standard play goes catastrophically wrong, Mike has to tackle the past and make peace with the man he dreamed he would be. Played in four quarters with a half-time show, dance company, and a drumline, COLOSSAL’s explosive theatrical storytelling and full-contact physicality carries this unmissable summer event all the way to the end zone.
