Gruesome Playground Injuries @ The Empress Theatre

From the director:

“I was drawn to this play because of its evocative treatment of the trauma we undergo as humans in relationships. It is the story of two people who are so alone and yet who share an intense and visceral bond. Though it is the story of a 30 year relationship between a man and a woman, it is not the story of a romance. It is neither a failed romance nor does it have a happily ever after. It is something different… As we each go through our lives, we form relationships with ourselves and with the people in our lives. This play asks us to examine what these relationships mean to us, and how they affect us through out our lives. Those that are closest to us, with whom we are most intimate -whether sexually, romantically, platonically, intellectually, or spiritually – have the greatest ability to hurt us. And with whom are we more intimate than with ourselves?”
