At the Lounge Theatre (6201 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90038) as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival (#hw2018)
FIERCE BACKBONE is proud to present Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm’s “WOUNDED” at the HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL. Directed by Liz Lanier, the play will preview on June 3, 2018 and run until June 23, 2018 in its world premiere.
WOUNDED tells the story of a woman who is the fulltime caregiver for her husband after he has been severely mentally and physically injured in the Iraq war. The woman is, for the first time, considering having a real relationship with someone new while still taking care of her husband. It explores the question of what loyalty you owe your spouse when they stop being the person you married. The play puts the spotlight on some of the people affected by war whose stories aren’t often told.
The cast is currently unannounced. Art by Matthew Hill.
