New play: ‘Gruesome Playground Injuries’
JAY – “Gruesome Playground Injuries,” a new play by the critically acclaimed young writer, Rajiv Joseph, is an emotional roller coaster that begins when Doug and Kayleen meet, wounded, at age 8 in a parochial school infirmary. Through a series of non- linear vignettes that bounce over 3 decades, this unconventional story illustrates how complicated, jagged, and sublime the curse of love can be. With local actors Olivia Zeis and Martin Deslauriers, this production is staged by Recovery Lounge Artistic Director Scott Renderer. Shows will be held at 8 p.m. July 25, 26, 27, 28, Aug. 1, 2, 3 and 4. Tickets are $18. Call 946-8315 for reservations.
