The critically acclaimed play Gruesome Playground Injuries by Rajiv Joesph, will be available to stream on May 9 on YouTube through Red Line Productions. The play will be read by homegrown talents, Rose Byrne and Ewen Leslie. Red Line Productions in these uncertain times is proudly bringing the theatre to you.
Red Lines Artistic Director Andrew Henry is excited to introduce Gruesome Playground Injuries after the success of streaming Orphans featuring Alec Baldwin, in April. “Orphans was a triumphant proof of concept for us, we had thousands of emails following the stream, accompanied by photographs of people dressed up to see our live stream in their theatre outfits. It was just gorgeous and a no brainer to do it again.”
Andrew Henry, is keen to recreate the magic of bringing theatre to YouTube on May 9. This time there will even be live music. “Gruesome Playground Injuries is just one of the most gorgeous scripts of friendship, love, and life. This time we will be connecting Rose Byrne in New York and Ewen Leslie in Sydney to read the two characters, and we are adding live music by John Butler, who will be connected from Perth,” Andrew says.
