Critics fall in love with Gruesome Playground Injuries

6 February 2013

“Capital T Theatre may be best known for the impressive lineup of well-produced, well-received contemporary plays they’ve mounted recently. Rajiv Joseph’s 2011 gem of a love story, Gruesome Playground Injuries, is no exception”

– Austin Chronicle

“With its quirky script, impressive performances, and astounding direction, Gruesome Playground Injuries is a triumph. If you’re in the mood for an anti-rom-com, this is a must see.”

– Austin Broadway World

“Kelsey Kling makes a distinguished directorial debut with Rajiv Joseph’s gem of a love story”

– Austin Chronicle

“Jason Newman and Laura Artesi perfectly embody accident-prone childhood friends Doug and Kayleen; their chemistry is exhilarating and their timing impeccable.”

– Austin Chronicle

“With its quirky script, impressive performances, and astounding direction, Gruesome Playground Injuries is a triumph. If you’re in the mood for an anti-rom-com, this is a must see.”

– Austin Broadway World

“Jason Newman demonstrates greater range and inventiveness in this piece than other recent roles have afforded him.  Doug is bravely stoic about physical pain but at the same time he’s consumed by inner pain. Newman shows this with a combination of intensity and restraint that’s deeply affecting.”

– Austin Live Theatre

“Newcomer Laura Artesi is by turns gawky and beautiful, making Kayleen conflicted, self-absorbed and ultimately unapproachable, a baffled survivor.”

– Austin Live Theatre

“Highly entertaining and engrossing”

– Austin Broadway World
