Untold Wants Theatre launches Kickstarter Campaign for its New Play

Now Seeking Community Support via Kickstarter, Gruesome Playground Injuries by Rajiv Joseph is the Title of this New Play by the North American Theatre Company!

Untold Wants Theatre has proudly announced the launch of its third play in Canada titled “Gruesome Playground Injuries.” The exciting new play is written by an award-winning playwright Rajiv Joseph, and the theatre company has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds and support for this project. Moreover, the show dates for this play at the Clutch Theatre located in East Vancouver are from February 5 to February 15, 2020.

“Gruesome Playground Injuries” by Rajiv Joseph will be presented at the Cultch Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia, and we need your help to make it a reality,” said Éanna O’Dowd, the Co-Producer of this play, while introducing this project to the Kickstarter community. “With our ethos of bringing new works to the stage, as well as staying true to the classics, Vancouver was the perfect choice to allow us to do this piece. It’s only a decade old, and with every passing political and sociological trend, ‘Gruesome’ becomes more relevant. The feeling of chasing after hope, or that love is the only thing that can keep us going, is a feeling to which we can all relate. There is an ever-evolving attitude toward the benefits of being proactive in the specific curating of our lives, with regard to career, relationships, and the little daily choices we make every day to that end. We can understand the overwhelming feeling brought on by an important connection, where all those choices are shaped by another person regardless of their physical presence in our lives. Healthy or not, the work is in understanding that Doug and Kayleen define hope and love in the only way they need to in order to survive. I think that’s an important message for those looking for meaning in their choices, or their current pursuits. As doug and Kayleen learn that their push/pull isn’t fueling them, they can step back and see that the connection, above all else, is what saves them. We welcome you all to support us on Kickstarter,” he added.
