BWW Review: GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES - A Must-See, Ideal Convergence of Creative Talent
by Gil Kaan - May 23, 2016

Rajiv Joseph's very tricky to pull off GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES lands at the Hudson Backstage as a stunning success! Considering the main conceit of GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES requires two actors playing a 30-year age range from 8 to 38; in less capable hands, this seventy-minute one-act would have been so ripe for missteps.   (more...)
