WOUNDED tells the story of a woman who's been in the role of caregiver to her husband ever since he was severely mentally and physically injured in the Iraq war. The show starts when she, for the first time, is considering having a real relationship with someone new while still taking care of her husband. WOUNDED explores the question of what loyalty you owe your spouse when they stop being the person you married.

“If the purpose of live theater is to connect us with others and illuminate their experiences so we can learn about ourselves as we witness them, then this piece has achieved its mission. It is an honor to have witnessed a piece of theater that can have that effect on an audience. I highly recommend this show.” – Russell Eaton, My Haunt Life
“Wounded is not, however, an anti-war play. It is a quiet, respectful examination of three intersecting lives. Indeed, respect — and love — for his characters is one of Kaz’s strengths as a playwright.” – Mark Hein, Theatre Ghost
“Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm has written something much more interesting than a play about the human cost of war. It’s more about how we deal with damaged people, or how damaged people deal with each other.” – Guy Picot, FringeReview
