Wounded by Jiggs Burgess Directed by Del Shores Starring Craig Taggart and Shaw Jones
A repressed nobody who thinks of himself as somebody. An addict. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf played out between hummingbirds. And a pussy eating dog. This is Wounded. Carrol could’ve been somebody, after all his book, The Crimson Valise, was made into a movie. Yet somehow Carrol’s unhealed past, and an aging mother, got in the way. On the other hand, Carrol’s classmate, Robert, was smart and driven. Went to one of the best private universities in the country on scholarship. But his damage led him down the path of addiction and eventually prison.
In this darkest of comedies, the bleak paths our lives can lead us down are on full display.

"The acting was powerful, fusing cunning insights and vulnerability to lull the audience into a sense that they knew these people only to explode that comfort with shocking truths and bitter nostalgia. It was a great piece of theater." ~ Jocelyn Wright, Certified Hollywood Fringe Reviewer
"This was one of the most profound and poignant pieces of art I’ve seen in Los Angeles and frankly, in my life." ~Taylor Moore, Certified Hollywood Fringe Reviewer
