For our 10th Season, even amidst COVID-19, we bring you 4 stories that expose the fight for autonomy. Who controls our well-being? How far will we go to claim our destiny as our own? Through seminal works by Pulitzer Prize Tony and Nobel Nominees, and masters of the theatrical canon, we are initiating a deep conversation about what it means to be human, and how these works reflect the trials and tribulations we experience in today's society. 

We sure hope you'll join us for our landmark 10th Season and help us create a new conversation to connect with your fellow man. Perhaps, as Gandhi said, we together can be the change we wish to see in the world.

KEELY AND DU by Jane Martin

TSP Ripple For Change Series

October 31-November 7, 2020 via Zoom and YouTube

Co-Directed by Brandon Walker and Erin Cronican

1994 Nominee for the Pulitzer Prize. From the author of Talking With and Vital Signs, KEELY AND DU is a volatile drama about abortion rights. Du is a right-to-life activist, and Keely is the pregnant rape victim Du is confining to keep her from having an abortion. Through the play these two women find a way to transcend their circumstances and the ideological issues that separate them. 

This play is being presented as a benefit for Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St Louis Region. RHS is a 501(c)(3) corporation specializing in women’s reproductive health, specifically abortion services. In addition to being the only state-licensed abortion facility in Missouri for many years, RHS is the longest standing non-profit abortion provider in the state of Missouri. The Seeing Place feels it's important to recognize and support reproductive health facilities in "red" states when access, which is constitutionally protected, is being restricted.
