Theatre Wesleyan will present Rajiv Joseph’s Gruesome Playground Injuries as the fifth production in the “Six Plays At Six Feet” semester of fall programming.
The production, directed by theatre department chair and professor Bryan Stevenson, will be presented at the Thad Smotherman Theatre at Texas Wesleyan University, 1205 Binkley St., Nov. 6-8.
The production will also be available as a livestream for audience members who wish to experience the show from their home, the theatre said in a news release.
From the Pulitzer Prize finalist and award-winning author of Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo, Gruesome Playground Injuries covers the course of 30 years in the lives of Kayleen and Doug.
Their lives intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together.
Faculty, staff, and students, as well as audience members who attend Gruesome Playground Injuries must adhere to local social distancing guidelines.
All plans and information are subject to change and announcements will be made in the event adjustments are, or need to be, made for the safety of our faculty, staff, students, and audience, the news release said.
