5 W, 12 to 86 M, and a live marching band / 90 MIN
Russell and Mia meet minutes before the first football game of the season. He's the star running back, she plays the sousaphone in the university marching band. No one ever pictured them together. But they are. And in a weird way they're good for each other. Until they're not. Rushing explores the culture of violence, the fanaticism surrounding Division I sports, and rape on college campuses nationwide.
This play takes place in your town. The team is wearing your colors. And yes, there's a live marching band scoring this entire world.
