The K of D
By Laura Schellhardt
Part urban legend, part dark comedy, “The K of D” is set in a small town in Ohio during one hot, sticky summer as a pack of teenagers try to make sense of a local boy’s death. The truth, as told by a former member of the pack, is that 12-year-old Jamie was hit by a car and gave his twin sister Charlotte a kiss before dying in her arms. The growing legend is that everything Charlotte kisses from that moment forward also dies. “The K of D” slips between the psychological and the supernatural to explore grief, revenge and the healing power of storytelling.
This production will be directed by Jennifer Grace, a theatremaker with twenty-five years of acting and technical experience in Off-Broadway and professional Chicago productions. Grace intends to root this production in her considerable experience with Anne Bogart's Viewpoints technique and other acting methodologies, as well as a soundscape that will be produced live by the actors themselves. Come be a part of this special production!
