Kyle's got a true story to tell you... at least the parts he was conscious for are true. Seizures, sexual assault, humor, love ... a romantic comedy according to Kyle.

When the effects of a traumatic brain injury start to surface, every part of Kyle's life seems out of control - including his sex drive. Struggling to get control of his life, Kyle needs to start with his boyfriend, or maybe his best friend, and also his roommate ... and then there's the sailor with "special skills."


Award-winning playwright/screenwriter Dennis Bush ("(Mary)Todd" and "...Where You Eat") explores this subject matter from a new and refreshing vantage point. His director, Lester Thomas Shane, won Best Director, for Bush's "(Mary)Todd" Abbey Howard serves as production stage manager. Head First contains adult language and sexual situations. Learn more at
