Gruesome Playground Injuries 

by Rajiv Joseph

Directed by Lynn Lammers

April 12 - 29, 2018
trustArt Studios, 7885 Jackson Road, Suite 1, Ann Arbor, MI 48103

It’s not your typical love story: Doug and Kayleen meet at the nurse’s office in their elementary school; she’s got a painful stomach ache, and he’s all banged up from a running dive off the roof of the school. Over the next thirty years, these twisted souls meet again and again, brought together by injury, heartbreak, and their own self-destructive tendencies. With great compassion and humor, playwright Rajiv Joseph (Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo) crafts a compelling and unconventional story about the intimacy between two people when they allow their defenses to drop and their wounds to show. 

Contains adult language and content.  Tickets available online and at the door (credit or cash).
