While many kids escape the school nurse’s office with nothing but a Band-Aid, elementary students Doug and Kayleen leave with the makings of a relationship in Gruesome Playground Injuries. Staged by SeeSaw Company, Rajiv Joseph’s poignant play follows two friends who, over 30 years, are bound by both physical wounds and scars that go unseen. Local actors Timothy Lewis and Drew Springer-Miller show their range by playing the pair from ages 8 to 38 with blood, bruises and lacerations marking the passage of time. The story, told in nonchronological scenes, plays out at South Burlington’s Spotlight on Dance.
