Gruesome Playground injuries

By Rajiv Joseph
Directed by Laura Rikard

Monday, March 27, 2023 at 5:30 p.m. | *SpongeBob cast can audition/interview first

FUSE International will take place from 30 June – 9 July 2023.

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.
