Bathsheba Doran

Published by Oberon

This first collection of plays from Bathsheba Doran offers three plays ...


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

The play sheds a sharp light on the changing face of kinship in the expansive landscape of the modern world

Parents Evening

It's dusk. Mother and father are in their bedroom, dressing in preparation for Parents' Evening at their only daughter's primary school

During this rare opportunity to check in, the couple embarks on a volatile, passionate and surprising confrontation that challenges every one of their life choices

A painfully witty, perceptive exploration of the landlines of parenting in modern marriage

The Mystery of Love and Sex

Charlotte and Jonny definitely love each other

But not that way

Or maybe that way

They're in college and have been close friends since they were nine

They might be in love

They might be moving in together

They might even be getting married

Or they might not

Also, Charlotte wonders if she might be gay

Or maybe bisexual

As does Jonny

So why are they turning their relationship romantic?


CRITICS' PICK! - "'Simply terrific. Perhaps the finest new play of the season. Funny and audacious, haunting, and exquisitely wrought" ~ Charles Isherwood, New York Times

"Raucous comedy, poignant emotion - Kin does all that and more, establishing Bathsheba Doran as a major talent ... You'll fall in love" ~ Frank Scheck, New York Post
