Pulitzer, From Off-Broadway

Winner! 1993 American Theatre Critics Association Award, Best New Play
Finalist! 1994 Pulitzer Prize in Drama
From the author of Talking With and Vital Signs, here is a volatile drama about abortion. Du, a right to life activist, and Keely, a pregnant rape victim she is confining, transcend their circumstances and the ideological issues that separate them. Keely and Du is a mind probing issue play with a gripping human face. Who is accountable? What is the extent of individual freedom? What are a rape victim's rights? What is a Christian's realities of procreation? Their passionate stories exist on the extreme edge of everyday reality.

An excellent play about a controversial subject.

I LOVE Keely and Du- its is very raw and blunt, and a force to be reckoned with- Not for the light of heart.
This play pushes boundaries and lets us examine the human spirit that is in all of us when we are passionate about issues and debate.
I read through it so quickly as I was kept on the edge of my seat waiting for what was coming next.
