He was an NFL starting quarterback, a Pro Bowl hero, a man living the American Dream ... and then he disappeared. Now, nearly 40 years later, Mike Boryla (Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers) returns to tell his astounding story in the riveting one-man play Disappearing Quarterback. For this world premiere, Boryla journeys back to the city that made him famous to explain why he walked away from the sport and teammates he loved. Telling his story with the grace and finesse he showed on the field of Veterans Stadium, this Stanford-educated standout also discusses the dark side of "America's Game," including the lingering effects of concussions. Performed at the intimate third-floor Skinner Studio, Disappearing Quarterback puts you inside the helmet of this remarkable athlete, playwright, lawyer and original thinker. Learn More
