Gruesome Playground Injuries

By Rajiv Joseph

Directed by Raquel Lopez

Over the course of 30 years, the lives of Kayleen and Doug intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together. “Rajiv Joseph is an artist of original talent.” —NY Times. “Irresistibly odd and exciting...This darkly humorous drama is Rajiv Joseph’s most satisfying work.” —NY Daily News. “This wondrous strange two-hander finds as much
humor as horror in the play’s bizarre events.” —Variety. “Mystical, arresting, and quirkily amusing.” — Washington Post.


Doug - Sean Freeman

Kayleen - Daphne Escalante
