Gruesome Playground Injuries

When the lights went down and the show began, I immediately realized, Damn I think I've seen this show before? Sure enough, I'd caught the production in 2016 at Pacific Theatre.

Now on at The Cultch is Gruesome Playground Injuries presented by Untold Wants Theatre. This play is a love story told through injuries in various school nurses' offices and hospital rooms.

Perhaps what was most intriguing about this production were the transition scenes that took place, where the two actors change their costumes and make-up right in front of the audience, while soft music plays and we witness the love that the two share for one another through the caring glances and the way they help one another transform for the next scene.

Gruesome Playground Injuries is on at the Cultch's Culture Lab until February 15.
