Rajiv Joseph’s “Gruesome Playground Injuries”

at The Star Theater at the Kittery Community Center

October 17 through 26

by Rajiv Joseph, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo”

An accident-prone daredevil and a caustic masochist navigate friendship, love and the squishy parts that lie in between. In scenes that bounce back and forth over three decades of a 30-year relationship, Doug and Kayleen meet in a school nurse’s office, and from there build a complex connection over a lifetime of injuries, both physical and emotional. Truly a different type of love story, Gruesome Playground Injuries will leave you aching from its sharp humor and sharper insights into its brilliantly crafted characters.

October 17th through October 26th
Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 3pm
