About This Show

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 Football 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.
