Event Information

In writing Kin, Bathsheba Doran said she was “attempting to conjure the globe.” The play takes place over a seven-year period in various locations in Ireland and America. At a historical moment when some want to build walls to separate people, Kin explores the strong bonds between them. It delineates emotional relationships with humor and compassion to show how real and sustaining even the most unlikely connections can be. The action unfolds like snapshots from the characters’ lives. Anna, a graduate student, is writing her dissertation on Keats’s punctuation, with a particular interest in his ellipses, and has just begun dating Sean, an Irish personal trainer. Like the ellipses she studies, their developing relationship, complicated by issues of class and geography, becomes a kind of “connect the dots” game as they are almost never seen together onstage. Through the experience of characters drawn into Anna and Sean’s emotional orbit, Kin becomes a reflection on community. Notwithstanding the fear, doubt, and anxiety that afflicts many of them, the human need for connection and the courage to take risks helps Kin end on a note of optimism.
