Anna, an Ivy League poetry scholar, and Sean, an Irish personal trainer, hardly seem destined for one another. But as their web of disparate family and friends crosses great distances – both psychologically and geographically – an unlikely new family is forged. Bathsheba Doran's play sheds a sharp light on the changing face of kinship in the expansive landscape of the modern world.

Raucous comedy, poignant emotion — "Kin" does all that and more, establishing Bathsheba Doran as a major talent. The ensemble delivers vividly memorable performances. You’ll fall in love.—Frank Scheck, New York Post
FOUR STARS! A smashing cast and bravura direction by Sam Gold.—David Cote, Time Out New York
