Synopsis

The K of D follows the story of Charlotte McGraw, a 12-year-old girl struggling to come to terms with the death of her twin brother, Jamie. It also follows the growing "legend" of Charlotte McGraw, as narrated by a pack of teenagers who live near Charlotte on a man-made lake in southwest Ohio. As with all great legends, truth and fiction become inextricably linked in this play. The truth is that Charlotte's brother was hit by a car and died in her arms. The truth is that moments before he died, he kissed her, gently, on the lips. The legend is that everything Charlotte kissed from that moment forward also died. The K of D begins upon the discovery of her new "skill" and tracks the events that transpire when the man who killed her brother returns to town and Charlotte's family attempts to use her skill to get rid of him. The K of D is designed as a one-woman show. One actress portrays 17 characters including Charlotte, her mother, her father, her new-found neighbor, and the pack of rag-tag kids who speculate on much of Charlotte's story. The story purposely blurs the line between fact and fiction. Moreover, it suggests that drawing that line might be an act of futility as, if we're lucky, we all become legends in the end.
