"To Kill A Kelpie" in San Diego
"To Kill A Kelpie," a brilliant and hailed production by accomplished Scottish playwright Matthew McVarish, has thus far been performed in Scotland and across the U.S., including on Off-Broadway. A 'Kelpie' is widely known as a devious creature lurking in the depths of highland lochs. When two grown brothers reunite, following the death of their uncle, they realize that his gruesome tales of a child-devouring monster were simply a climate of fear created to ensure their silence and cooperation during years of sexual abuse. In this unconventional drama, we meet two men talking to the children they were. Still unsure whether there might be any truth in the Kelpie stories, they face one another like a mirror to open painful boxes of sexual confusion, self doubt, and shame, while endeavoring honestly to end the silence and open their minds enough to consider what it would take 'to kill a Kelpie.'
"Kelpie" was inspired by the work of Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc. (Stop the Silence, www.stopcsa.org). Proceeds from ticket sales help support the work of the organization.
