think I care about a rapist who found Jesus!?!"
Theatre is proud to present the unflinching
rights drama KEELY
AND DU by
This white-knuckled tale follows two Right-to-Life extremists and the pregnant
woman they have kidnapped to stop from having an abortion. Chained to a
gurney, rape victim Keely is left with nothing but her sheer determination to
resist her abductors. But as this battle of wills spins further and
further out of control, the battle lines only get more blurry. Fear,
tenderness, faith, compassion, love, hate, trust, and fanatacism swirl into a
dizzying whirlwind as both sides are forced to face their demons.
AND DU premiered
as a "ripped
from the headlines" new
play at the 1993 Humana Festival in Kentucky, it won the American Theatre
Critics Association New Play Award and was a finalist for the 1994 Pulitzer
Prize in Drama. Over
twenty years later, it's sad
to find that this play is STILL ALL TOO RELEVANT as the struggle for a women's
right to choose is constantly
under siege. Nowadays the battle has -- mostly -- moved off the
front page and behind closed doors as rights have been steadily legislated
away. The door is closing on decent health care and access to abortion
for millions of women throughout this country as clinics and hospitals are
increasingly de-funded and/or privatized.
