Unfortunately Timely, Blood River is set in a post Roe v Wade overturned place where women's health rights have been reduced significantly. Abortion is illegal and the line between religion and law has blurred to non-existence. Karen rows a boat across the river to a different state where women are not prosecuted for putting their lives ahead of their unborn children. This world premiere was commissioned by Theatre Kingston from Kingston Playwright Chloe Whitehorn and examines women's agency and the plight presented by the predatory political agendas of the patriarchy.

THE STORY: Maude, a fifty-something unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, has bought a painting for a few bucks from a thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, shes now convinced its a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover. Inspired by true events, this hilarious and thought-provoking new comedy-drama asks vital questions about what makes art and people truly authentic.
