Livia Genise Productions in partnership with Ashland Contemporary Theatre present:
A Staged Reading of
KEELY & DU
by Jane Martin
(Sponsored by Louis & Pat Franks)
Keely and Du is a mind-probing issue play with a gripping human face.
Layered with feeling and wired with suspense, this runner-up for the 1994 Pulitzer Prize
explores the boundaries of individual freedom and the extremities of religious zeal,
through the relationship of Du, a right-to-life activist,
and Keely, a woman made pregnant by rape, whom Du is confining.
Can they find a way to transcend through friendship their circumstances
and the ideological issues that separate them?
Playwright Jane Martin (Vital Signs and Talking With) poses the thorny question,
that despite the human need for connection,
is love really possible, even a mother’s, when its origin is involuntary?
“Keely and Du” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
Content Advisory: Although this play is presented as a reading, there is some described violence.
Topics include rape, assault, and kidnapping.
