Two years ago Jack Gallagher was struck by a car while riding his bike and suffered a traumatic brain injury. While he walked away from the accident seemingly unfazed by week’s end he was in the emergency room and was directed to take “cognitive rest” by his physician.
The prescription resulted in four days spent in a dark room with no visual, mental or physical stimulation. Left only with time to think. Incessantly.
Working through the four days resulted in Concussed: Four Days in the Dark. Gallagher’s one-man performance showcases his wide-ranging introspection while providing an emotional and heartfelt appeal.
Lauded as “thoroughly engaging” and “hysterically funny” by the Sacramento Bee (), and “funny, touching and always entertaining” by the Sacramento News and Review ().
