  • Overview

    The New York Times called GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES by Rajiv Joseph  “Mystical, arresting, and provocatively amusing”. 

    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.

    The New York Times calls playwright Rajiv Joseph “an artist of original talent.” Variety says "This wondrous and strange two-hander finds as much humor as horror in the play's bizarre events."
