Over the course of 30 years, the lives of Kayleen and Doug intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together.

Rajiv Jospeh received his B.A. in Creative Writing from Miami University and his M.F.A. in Playwriting from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, and is currently a Language Lecturer at NYU with the School of Art and Public Policy and the Expository Writing Program.

“Rajiv Joseph is an artist of original talent.” —NY Times. “Irresistibly odd and exciting…This darkly humorous drama is Rajiv Joseph’s most satisfying work.” —NY Daily News. “This wondrous strange two-hander finds as much humor as horror in the play’s bizarre events.” —Variety.

GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. New York.
