Kaddish is spoken by a man who has watched his female companion die. His grief becomes an unbearable anguish as he reflects on the poverty that meant she was buried in a pauper's grave.

We learn something of the dead woman from her words, repeated by the man, and they have all the pathos of a humility that asks for so very little: I don't need much. It's enough for me. We've been happy enough.

Daniel Keene's collaboration with director Ariette Taylor—the Keene/Taylor Theatre Project—was critically acclaimed both locally and overseas.

Kaddish was first performed as part of KTTP Season 5 in 1998.
