An accident-prone daredevil 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.
