              VIsit http://www.berkeleyrep.org/season/1415/8241.asp for tickets and more information. Are you ready for some football? American identity and our love of the game meet head-on in this world premiere commissioned by Berkeley Rep and directed by Michael Leibert Artistic Director Tony Taccone. Our singularly American sport is intricately woven into our culture and rituals, yet its traumatic effect on players and their families has us reexamining its place in our country’s story. Playwright and football superfan KJ Sanchez, along with Jenny Mercein, brings us a fascinating and hard-hitting docudrama—based on interviews with players, their families, and their fans—that examines our country’s passion for a sport that is both generous and dangerous, life-giving yet lethal. X’s and O’s (A Football Love Story) is as visceral, emotional, and as highly theatrical as the game itself. By KJ Sanchez with Jenny Mercein Directed by Tony Taccone Main Season · Thrust Stage January 16–March 1, 2015 World Premiere Running time: 85 minutes, no intermission
