Gruesome Playground Injuries

Mystical, arresting, and quirkily amusing.” —The Washington Post

It’s not your typical love story: Doug and Kayleen meet at the nurse’s office in their elementary school; she’s got a painful stomach ache, and he’s all banged up from a running dive off the roof of the school. Over the next 30 years, these scar-crossed lovers meet again and again, brought together by injury, heartbreak, and their own self-destructive tendencies. With great compassion and humor, playwright Rajiv Joseph (Broadway’s "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo") crafts a compelling and unconventional love story about the intimacy between two people when they allow their defenses to drop and their wounds to show.

In CU Boulder Department of Theatre & Dance's Acting Studio performances, audiences experience a variety of experimental works in an intimate black box theatre. Don't wait to reserve your free tickets. Due to limited seating, these productions often sell out in just a few days.
