“slightly sick but touching portrait of a friendship” -Globe and Mail.
Gruesome Playground Injuries follows Kayleen and Doug from ages 8 to 38 as they weave in and out of each others lives, brought together by their self-destructive nature, heartache, and of course, gruesome injuries.
Gruesome Playground Injuries will be staged in support of LOFT Community Services.
Through this community partnership, Leroy Street Theatre will host introductory theatre workshops for LOFT Community members. In addition The Assembly Theatre's lobby space will be turned into a gallery to showcase LOFT members’ visual art. This gallery opening is scheduled for Thursday, January 17th - 2019
"So many people want to put on their stuff but don't have the resources. This is it!"
"Community outreach starts with adjusting the practice of just doing pure presentation, then you can begin to build an artistic relationship"
"What's so inspiring is the independent on-the-ground theatre that is happening in this city"
"I go see as many things as I can because I love it so much. I want to be involved, I want to be a part"
