"Keely and Du" examines the abortion issue, presenting both sides, at the Black Box Theatre.

 
The College of the Canyons Theatre Department presents the powerful and controversial drama "Keely and Du," opening Wednesday, Nov. 18 in the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center's Black Box Theatre.

Keely, a pregnant rape victim, is kidnapped outside an abortion clinic and held prisoner. She wakes up chained to a bed. She discovers from a visitor, Du, that she has been kidnapped by a radical pro-life group intent on forcing Keely to have her baby. And so the play and the conversation begins. The production, written by Jane Martin and directed by Susan Hinshaw, will offer performances at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18 through Saturday, Nov. 21 - and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov.

"Keely and Du" presents the abortion issue in a balanced fashion. Who is accountable, God or man? What man or woman can be accountable for a human life? What is the extent of individual freedom? What is a rape victim's right?

The production contains mature subject matter and adult language. Due to the nature of this production, there will be no late seating. Patrons are urged to arrive at the theatre at least 15 minutes before curtain.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and can be purchased through the PAC box office by visiting the COC Web site or calling (661) 362-5304.
