The Playground is about every child’s struggle to grow up. The dance is centered on the pivotal moment in everyone's childhood, when they suddenly realize their parents don’t have all the answers. What happens after that is imperative to every child because it determines who rises above the resentment for their fallen idols and who falls deep into a pit bitterness and hatred.
