Dauphin Island by Jeffry Chastang

Jeffry Chastang’s comic drama about two displaced souls in the backwoods of Alabama, Dauphin Island, is having its Midwestern Premiere production at the Detroit Repertory Theatre.

Suspicion and fascination dovetail when Selwyn interrupts the self-imposed isolation of Kendra. Leaving behind a messy divorce and time spent living in his car in Detroit, he embarks on a trip for a new beginning. When his car breaks down, he happens upon Kendra, a woman who has secluded herself in the Alabama woods. The play follows the two displaced characters as their lives begin to unexpectedly intertwine. The result is a loving look at humanity, but not the saccharine sort of love we so often see on the big and small screen. It is a look at the ability of those laid low to try and rebuild, and their willingness to both understand the faults of others and to be willing to help them recreate themselves.

Playwright Jeffry Chastang is an local writer, native of Inkster, MI and he is also an actor and a member of the Detroit Rep family of artists.Dauphin Island is directed by Leah Smith and her cast is Yolanda Jack and Jonathan West.
