A critically-acclaimed play from a Pulitzer Prize finalist explores the complexities of relationships at Playlovers Theatre this July.

Written by Rajiv Joseph and directed by Kristen Twynam-Perkins, Gruesome Playground Injuries has been described as a modern “anti-romance” as it follows the lives of Doug and Kayleen from the ages of eight to 38.

The darkly humorous drama looks at how their lives keep intersecting at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare the scars and physical calamities that keep drawing them together.

Tickets are $20, $15 concession. A high tea follows the July 19 performance and is an additional $5.

Playlovers is located at Hackett Hall, Draper Street (off Underwood Avenue), Floreat.
