American Records takes on american football

XO's and O's (A Gridiron Love Story)

By KJ Sanchez with Jenny Mercein
Directed by Tony Taccone
Main Season · Thrust Stage
Starts January 16, 2015
World premiere

Memory, myth, and football meet head on in this hard-hitting world premiere commissioned by Berkeley Rep and directed by Michael Leibert Artistic Director Tony Taccone. KJ Sanchez’s previous play ReEntry, featuring a moving portrayal of Marines preparing for and returning from combat, was an explosive off-Broadway hit. Now she brings us a gripping new docudrama about a love that is generous yet dangerous, life-giving yet lethal—and a passion that borders on addiction yet feels so much a part of our DNA. Dramatically based on brutally honest and heartrending interviews with players, their families, and their fans about traumatic brain injuries and their impact on the game,X’s and O’s (A Gridiron Love Story) takes an unflinching look at the lives and loves around this singularly American sport—and the lingering questions it asks of us all.

X’s and O’s (A Gridiron Love Story) was commissioned by Berkeley Rep and developed in The Ground Floor, Berkeley Rep’s Center for the Creation and Development of New Work.

    Lovers of real, live music in our time there are very few! Classics can not be so easy to understand, it is necessary to listen to for years!
