"The K of D" at B Street Theatre

Every Halloween-season, I see a slew of spooky-themed plays come through on Sacramento365.com. As a sucker for suspenseful tales (movies, TV shows, books — you name it), I have always been intrigued by these theatrical productions, but had yet to make my way to a mysterious play until this past weekend, when I saw The K of D: an urban legend on B Street Theatre’s Mainstage.

Initially wary about how an eerie tale would translate to the stage, my mind was put to rest as soon as I entered the theatre: dark, moody lighting and a stripped-down set transported me instantly to the small, Midwestern town where the play is set. And, as soon as the actors came onto the scene, I was sold.

Tara Sissom and Jason Kuykendall take on several roles each, seamlessly weaving the tale of the urban legend of “The K of D,” or “the kiss of death,” while playing three or four characters at any given time. (Although there are only two actors on stage, a scene may contain five or six characters. Sounds confusing, but I assure you it’s not.)

The K of D continues through November 11 and you don’t want to miss this intriguing tale. Showtimes are Tues 6:30pm; Wed 2pm & 6:30pm; Thurs & Fri 8pm; Sat 5pm & 9pm; Sun 2pm. Tickets start at $23 and are available online or by calling the B Street Theatre Box Office at (916) 443-5300.
