Gruesome Playground Injuries
 (2012)
by Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright Rajiv Joseph

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.

"We have given these two shows--Danny and the Deep Blue Sea and Gruesome Playground Injuries--an overlapping, repertory run to put them in direct communication with one another. One takes place over the course of 30 years, the other, a single night. With keen awareness, both playwrights manifest incredibly sensitive characters risking love - despite how painful that might be. 

Both plays confront the same big questions: Do we change? Does love have the power to save us? How do we write the stories of our own future?" - Mason Wagner, Director, BetweenTheLines
