(l-r) Simone Formerlycook Missick, Brent M. Jennings, and Diarra Kilpatrick of "Closely Related Keys."
“Closely Related Keys” is award-winning playwright Wendy Graf’s newest hard-hitting drama about family conflict and clashing cultures, and an African-American attorney’s shocking discovery that she has an Iraqi half-sister.
“It’s about love and loyalty, secrets and lies, and how the past, never being dead, just hovers around waiting to smack us upside the head,” says Graf. “It’s about picking up the broken pieces to imperfectly assemble a new family and future.”
The play stars Diarra Kilpatrick in the lead role of Julia, and is directed by Shirley Jo Finney. Joining Kilpatrick on stage will be Simone Missick, Brent Jennings, Ted Mattison and Adam Meir.
The play’s title is taken from a musical expression meaning “to share many common tones.”
“Closely Related Keys” opens on Friday, February 28 and continues through March 30. Performances take place Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 4 p.m. at the Lounge Theatre.
