Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great acting, Intense

See it if you are interested to learn how war can wound people in so many different ways, directly or indirectly, and how we deal with wounded people.

Don't see it if you only want light entertainment. This is a very serious, thought-provoking play which I want to think about but which might offend others. Read more

Intense, Riveting, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Great acting

See it if you like reality, as harsh as it can be, brought to light with a well-written and very demanding performance by three very good actors.

Don't see it if you aren't able to witness pain of all types that is brought on by injuries, some from war, some self-inflicted, could be disturbing to some

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intense, Raunchy

See it if you want a edgy show about a difficult but meaningful situation. A play that puts its characters in a bad situation and keeps them there.

Don't see it if you are bothered by likable characters doing things that are uncomfortable. The play doesn't fully resolve and that might bother you. Read more

Profound, Relevant, Intense, Depressing

See it if You are interested in stories concerning emotionally and physically wounded veterans and their caregivers.

Don't see it if You dislike depressing, intense plays, and also which have some sexual references. I would not recommend this play for children.

Riveting, Intense, Thought-provoking, Absorbing

See it if You're interested in an intense story about veterans after the war. It's not easy, and you won't get a pretty wrap-up. But well worth it.

Don't see it if You prefer your war stories heroic and bloodless. This is not macho or easy. Read more

“What’s great about ‘Wounded’ is the story behind the headlines of injured warriors returning home, the people who are there to welcome them with open arms and hearts...The bad part, unfortunately, is the execution. This production is one note heavily played over and over again, missing the humanity of our conflicted emotions and desires, the light mixed with the dark that makes up all our tragic lives...’Wounded’ has good bones, but the skin...needs a good caregiver.”

"The less you know ahead of time about the plot and characters of 'Wounded,' the better your experience will be – the story is a roller coaster and the title, as great titles are, is far deeper than its surface meaning. But you should go in with the knowledge that you will be watching an across-the-board stellar cast expertly directed with a script that will leave you shaken...You’ll remember the experience for a long time."

"Unravels lives before the audience revealing the bare pains underneath...Wounded builds intensity through the whole story, while unwinding the characters and audience, pulling them deeper into these tense painful pulsing, though invisible, wounds. Tommy (Scott Kuza) physically acted with such depth you could let go of yourself and feel his wounds, his pains. The ultimate looseness compared to Kyle’s tense portrayal...A must see...Go, now!

For a previous production

"All three of the play’s characters have had their lives violently reshaped; each is struggling to make some kind of progress into what’s left...'Wounded' is not, however, an anti-war play. It is a quiet, respectful examination of three intersecting lives...The performances of Kaz’s script are uniformly strong and real, filled with subtext and the subtle gestures that intimate theatre allows...Director Liz Lanier holds a steady pace and keeps our focus on what’s important."

For a previous production

"A harrowing 80 minutes. Harrowing and strangely beautiful as three deeply hurt human beings struggle with and for each other and themselves...In a raw tapestry of love and guilt with equal parts hope, despair, passion, and logic seemingly everything wonderful, all things heart-breakingly sad, plus weariness seeming into their bones plays itself out...Not a 'feel good' piece, but a 'feel very profoundly' work."

Fringe Review (UK)
June 9th, 2018
For a previous production

"This is not a comedy, nor an easy watch, but it is a very thought-provoking and timely play with excellent performances...Complicated emotions are mined unflinchingly as we wonder how exactly this unsustainable triangle is going to fall apart...Kazmierowicztrimm has written something much more interesting than a play about the human cost of war. It’s more about how we deal with damaged people, or how damaged people deal with each other...I highly recommend this show."
