The K of D is an urban legend with a dark sense of humor. It tracks a group of pre-teens as they tell the story of 12-year old, Charlotte McGraw. The pack believes that Charlotte has a fascinating and possibly deadly gift that fascinates and scares them. 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. The play purposely blurs the line between fact and fiction as the characters tell and retell the story to the point where no one knows what's true anymore.  

Director Nina Lynn says, "I'm so excited to be working on this play. To begin with, it's written by one of our graduates and it's an honor to present Laura Schellhardt's work in the place where she grew up. Also, the students have really enjoyed playing Laura's characters. The people in this play are funny, complicated, sarcastic, and trying to navigate a world they don't quite understand. I think that's something anyone who has been a kid can relate to."  

This production deals with death and contains some graphic language. It is recommended for grades 6 and up.
