    Keely and Du – by Jane Martin
    Directed by Sherry Sweeney
    An explosive and controversial drama from the author of “Talking With.” Du, a right-to-life activist, and Keely, a pregnant rape victim confined by Du, 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 the rape victim’s rights? What are a Christian’s realities of procreation? Their passionate stories exist on the extreme edge of everyday reality.

    Story Synopsis:

    AND THE WINNER IS tells the comic story of Tyler Johnes, a self-obsessed movie star, who is finally nominated for an Oscar, then dies the night before the awards. Outraged at his bad luck and determined to know if he wins (even though he’s dead), he bargains with a heavenly gatekeeper to return to earth for the big night. Along the way, he drags his agent, his acting rival, his bombshell girlfriend and his ex-wife into the journey, in a wildly twisting tale of Hollywood, the afterlife, and how we are judged
