Event Details

If it hurts, why do you do it?

Doug and Kayleen measure their lives by incidents, accidents, scars and stitches. Gruesome Playground Injuries tallies thirty years of these experiences: from ice skating disasters to flirting at funerals; romance in the school nurse’s office to conversing with the comatose; all through a prism of memory that explores the question – why do we hurt ourselves to gain someone else’s love? Pulitzer Prize finalist playwright Rajiv Joseph has become well-known for taking on sweeping moral issues with a unique and piercing humour.

Gruesome Playground Injuries has garnered critical acclaim internationally and Rajiv Joseph has been described by the New York Times as ‘an artist of original talent’.
