Gruesome Playground Injuries
In Gruesome Playground Injuries, Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph has crafted one of the most startlingly original and entertaining pieces of theatre in recent memory.
We follow two individuals, Kayleen (Seong Hui Xuan) and Doug (Alan Wong) from age eight to 38, leaping back and forth over the course of their lives in a deliriously disjointed time continuum. Doug is full of life and absurdly “accident-prone” while Kayleen hates her life and hides a painful secret. As they careen and collide into and out of each other’s lives, they become damaged goods for life but are forever bonded by bloodstains, broken bones, and bandages.
While examining these two lost soul mates in search of each other, we discover a powerful and surprising tribute to the human spirit. Gruesome Playground Injuries is hilarious, humane, and haunting.
