About the Show
Cave Theatre Co. presents a dramedy about two childhood friends examining the physical and emotional calamities that bind them together.
Accidents happen, and no one knows that better than Doug and Kayleen. Over the course of three decades, grievous injuries--both physical and metaphorical--always seem to bring them together; to heal, or at least share the pain. Love hurts…but is it supposed to bleed this much?
“The two actors pull this play along, even with lines that dart into extreme drama and sometimes sentimentality, making each line feel authentic and making the events of the play compelling ones. They are just as convincing as eight-year-olds as they are as 38-year-olds. Through the strength of their emotional and nuanced performances the actors make us believe two characters wanting to love each other, battle scars and all.”
