"Director Deborah Block has found exactly the right funny and tender and troubling tone."
Philadelphia Inquirer
"Keith Conallen and Charlotte Ford ... both masterfully embody the process of maturation in a play that glimpses their characters in five year increments from age 8 to 38"

Gruesome Playground Injuries

Gruesome Playground Injuries
By Rajiv Joseph
2010 Pulitzer Prize Finalist

An accident prone dare devil and a corrosive masochist navigate friendship, love and the squishy parts that lie in between.  In a series of non-linear vignettes that bounce over three decades of a 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 smarting from its sharp humor and sharper insights.

Theatre Exile presents the Philadelphia premier of the work of this year’s most critically acclaimed playwright, Rajiv Joseph.  Starring Keith Conallen and Charlotte Ford.

Directed by Deborah Block
