Keely and Du, is a play by American playwright Jane Martin [1], whose real identity remains unknown. Full Length Play, Drama: 2m, 3f, 3m or f. Winner 1993 American Theatre Critics Association Award, Best New Play; Finalist 1994 Pulitzer Prize in Drama. 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.
