Gruesome Playground Injuries

About the Show

Childhood friends, Doug and Kayleen are kindred spirits who meet over the course of thirty years. Every time one is drawn back into the other’s life, with a new self-inflicted wound, but are met with the decision to stay together or go their separate ways again. This funny, touching play takes a microscope to the societal repercussions of love and family, and explores the psychological and physical toll it can take on the two people in this world who are keeping each other alive. Pulitzer Prize playwriting finalist for Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, and Obie-winning playwright, Rajiv Joseph, explores the depth of connection that two people can forge within, and from behind, the walls of self-destruction.
