GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES by Rajiv Joseph
directed by Jennifer Welch
October 10 – November 9
Does time heal all wounds? Two eight-year-olds’ lives collide in the nurse’s office: Doug rode his bike off the roof and Kayleen can’t stop throwing up. As they mature from accident-prone kids to self-destructive adults, their broken hearts and broken bones draw them even closer. These two rebels may only be fit for one another. But how far can one person go to heal another’s wounds?
