Love hurts. And in Gruesome Playground Injuries Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph has crafted “a perfect dissection of contemporary love-lost relationships.” (Idaho Statesman), and one of the most startlingly original and screwed-up love stories of modern times.

We follow Kayleen (Seong Hui Xuan – Pangdemonium’s Rabbit Hole) and Doug (Alan Wong – The MTV Show) from age 8 to 38, leaping back and forth over the course of their lives in a deliriously disjointed time-continuum. Doug is full of life and absurdly “accident-prone”; while Kayleen hates her life and hides a painful secret. And for each of them the physical wounds they endure turn into emotional and psychological scars that never truly heal, and come to define who they are. As they careen and collide into and out of each other’s lives, they become damaged goods for life, but are forever bonded together by bloodstains, broken bones and bandages.

While examining two tortured lost-soul-mates in search of each other, we discover a bittersweet, savagely funny and achingly romantic love story of the most bizarre and surprisingly poignant kind.
