Anna, a Texan Ivy League poetry scholar, and Sean, an Irish personal trainer, hardly seem destined for one another. But as their web of family and friends crosses distances both psychological and geographical, an unlikely new family is forged. Bathsheba Doran's play sheds a sharp light on the changing face of kinship in the expansive landscape of the modern world.
"The truism that families come in all shapes and sizes is illuminated with haunting beauty…in this exquisitely wrought comedy-drama…a piercing portrait of the contemporary social architecture, in which the distance between people can be widened or collapsed with disorienting ease, whether it is through the click of a keyboard, a telephone conversation or a chance encounter. Many of the characters in the play never actually meet, and yet we come away with a moving sense of how each individual's experience resonates—troublingly or happily—in the lives of almost everyone else." —NY Times. "KIN…is stubbornly theatrical. Doran has written an intimate story by telling its nonintimate details, peripheral moments (like after-the-kiss debriefs with family members) that nonetheless coalesce into something penetratingly romantic…Doran has actually written around her story. This forces audiences into becoming complicit in imagining the central relationship." —Time Out NY. "…compelling…[an] expanding web of relationships is examined primarily for the better, illuminated with humor and insight in a series of concise, effective, emotion-laden vignettes…Doran's dialogue is pointed and humorous…KIN is both entertaining and thoughtful, a satisfying emotional journey from start to finish." —Associated Press.
