Company Of Fools Presents GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES

Company of Fools returns with another visceral, slice-of-life production to start off its 2021 season.
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 thirty 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.

This is a multi-disciplinary presentation: a piece of immersive theatre paired with an independent painting exhibition by New York artist Brittany Miller.
