Gruesome Playground Injuries

at Actors Theatre of Louisville

They say hindsight is 20/20. Of course, they also assume two working eyes.

Romeo and Juliet have nothing on the often funny, possibly tragic, and always gripping tale of Kayleen and Doug. They’ve suffered life’s slings and arrows, its heartbreaks, its electrocutions and its blunt force traumas. Now, about to hit 40 and no more certain than ever of their place in the world, they spin the yarn of two lives that began in a schoolyard, criss-crossed through the decades, and hurt like hell the whole time.

They say love hurts, and that’s what makes it worthwhile. Of course, they’ve never met Kayleen and Doug. After all, some love stories are written in the scars.

Help Make it Happen

Being scrappy and innovative only gets us so far. It costs money to rent performance space, build scenery, and purchase advertising. And we believe in fair compensation for our artists and partners, so we can’t pay for everything through ticket sales alone. Can you help us with one of these important items?

  • $3.50 buys one wooden 2x4
  • $30 covers printing programs for one night
  • $100 keeps our website online for a year
  • $250 buys costumes for one show
