Eve Theatre Company presents KIN
Eve Theatre Company will focus on family and friend connections when it presents its fifth season opener, KIN by Bathsheba Doran in the MeX Theatre at the Kentucky Center, November 3 – 13, 2016. KIN introduces Anna, a Texan Ivy League poetry scholar, and Sean, an Irish personal trainer, who 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.
KIN is a humorous and revealing series of vignettes that provide insight into the details of a young couple’s emerging relationship through the eyes of their closest friends and relatives. Even though many of the characters never meet, and the couple is rarely seen together, the play offers up a thoughtful and satisfying emotional journey that demonstrates how each individual’s experience resonates with others.
KIN, described as "exquisitely wrought" by the New York Times, premiered at off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons in 2011, under the direction of Sam Gold. Doran’s play The Mystery of Love and Sex, also directed by Sam Gold, was produced at Lincoln Center last year. She was nominated for a 2012 Writers Guild Award for her work on the HBO series Boardwalk Empire. She also wrote episodes for season 2 of the NBC show Smash and was a writer and co-producer of season 2 of Showtime’s Masters of Sex.
Eve’s production is directed by Gilmer McCormick Reinhardt and features: Kim Butterweck, Sean Childress, Jacob Cooper, Heather Hensley, Susan McNeese Lynch, Phil Lynch, Diane Stretz-Thurmond, Leila Toba and Ian Weber.
KIN will be performed November 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12 at 7:30 p.m. and November 6 and 13 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $22 general admission; $19 seniors, students and groups of ten or more and available though the Kentucky Center box office.
