Gruesome Playground Injuries


Directed by Stephen La Rocque

Starring Dylan La Rocque, Kelsey Weinstein

Original Score by Eric J. Weinstein

Over the course of 30 years, the lives of Kayleen and Doug intersect at the most bizarre intervals, leading the two childhood friends to compare scars and the physical calamities that keep drawing them together.

Gruesome Playground Injuries is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. New York.

This production was presented online in April of 2021 with a special talk-back session after the show featuring the actors and creative team. It was also available to stream via Video On Demand from April 23-25.

While writing the soundtrack for Gruesome Playground Injuries, I decided to keep the instrumentation as true to the characters as possible. I only used three instruments throughout the show – viola for Kayleen, cello for Doug, and piano for the rest of their ‘world’. The filmed production featured custom artwork that prefaced each scene to establish the time and place in their lives.
