GO is a soul-stirring, non-dialogue play by Ronald D. Eastman II and Stephanie Frazier. The two began writing GO in December 2016 after asking if it’s possible to write a play that speaks to each viewer differently, tells various stories in one piece of works, and if that piece of art can be interpreted in a way that the experience is felt instead of just told. It was there that a play without words was birthed.
GO, set in the present-day, is inspired by Eastman's life story (and book, Return to Your Senses), where abuse left him silenced until he chose to fight as an adult.
GO follows a young boy (Keith), who is forced into isolation (a cellar), ill-treated, silenced, and kept secluded by an unknown entity on the other side of a heavy steel door. Although doors usually serve as a way to come and go, this heavy steel door for Keith is only seen as a way of entry for abuse and never a pathway to escape.
Decades after surviving and being isolated in a cellar, a young and strong-minded girl enters this sequestered living space, and Keith is forced to find his voice, face his fears, and confront his younger self.
GO is a story of innocence broken and the birth of a protector!
