The old joke goes “How do porcupines make love? Very carefully.” In Ground Up and Rising’s sad and ultimately moving production of Gruesome Playground Injuries, the answer may be “not at all.” The difficulty of forging relationships among emotionally wounded people is at the heart of this decidedly off-beat, oddly-made play.
Ground Up & Rising, another scrappy cutting edge theater that performs intermittently and in different venues around Miami, is beginning another season of four minimalist productions including Edward Albee’s The Zoo Story, John Patrick Shanley’s Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, Danny Hoch’s Jails, Hospitals & Hip Hop and the recent off-Broadway hit Gruesome Playground Injuries by Rajiv Joseph
Mosaic Theatre continues its pirouette along the leading edge of modern drama with the announcements of its 2012-2013 season that includes two works by up-and-comer Rajiv Joseph playing in repertory, a new work by Conor McPherson and an acclaimed modern adaptation of Gogol’s classic The Diary of a Madman.
