THE STORY: COLLISION takes place in a college dormitory somewhere in the heart of America. Three students, a professor, and a stranger collide in this black comedy of emotions on the edge of the abyss.
“Bruising, rowdy-guy theater…Mr. Kessler has a gift for building momentum through accelerating degrees of conflict.” —NY Times. “[A] cocktail of sex, drugs, radical talk and visceral not-quite-realism…it’s a creepy pleasure to watch the characters…stomp down the garden path.” —Time Out NY. “Kessler has a keen eye for psychological and emotional manipulation.” —BackStage. “Kessler’s disturbing play delves into dark and disconcerting places…stunning language, vibrant speeches, and genuine emotion…COLLISION is a smart, troubling, and timely play…an intense, intelligent, and complicated piece for audiences ready to be challenged and intrigued.” —
