This is definitely not your typical love story. Doug and Kayleen meet at the nurse’s office in elementary school. She’s got a stomach ache; he’s all banged up from diving off the school’s roof. Over the next 30 years, these scar-crossed lovers meet again and again, brought together by injury, heartbreak, and their own self-destructive tendencies. With great compassion and humor, playwright Rajiv Joseph crafts a compelling and unconventional love story about the intimacy between two people when they allow their defenses to drop and their wounds to show.
