Gruesome Playground Injuries by Rajiv Joseph
Fri. and Sat., September 29 and 30, 7:30 p.m.
Edwin Barrett Theatre
Free admission

An accident-prone dare devil 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.

Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play by Anne Washburn, directed by Craig Latrell

Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play is a dark comedy exploring the creation of the myths and legends that are valued by our culture. In the wake of a post-apocalyptic event, a group of strangers gather to re-enact an episode from the cult classic TV series, The Simpsons. A new vision for musical theatre, complete with commercials, emerges from their recollections and is established as a valued cultural experience. Fast-forward seventy years into this new society and we find that The Simpsons has become high art. Whether you are a Simpsons fan or not, this piece will make you think about how stories are made and what we consider valuable in our culture.
