About the show

Kayleen and Doug go way back. They met in the nurse’s office of St. Margaret Mary’s, but kids grow up so fast these days. From throwing up at the school dance at thirteen, to shooting an eye out with a firework at twenty-three, to a psychotic break at thirty-three, they’ve always been there for one another.

Gruesome Playground Injuries is a modern-day love story by Rajiv Joseph, United States Artists Rockefeller Fellow and Pulitzer Prize finalist, about the near-misses that pull us apart and the pain that keeps us together.
