Roe

By LISA LOOMER | Directed by LAVINA JADHWANI | Based on the original production directed by BILL RAUCH

“Rousing Entertainment... A big play with big ideas.” – Mail Tribune

The lawyer: a young, courageous woman arguing her case before the Supreme Court. The plaintiff: a hard-living, single woman hoping for a quick end to an unwanted pregnancy. The aftermath: a place in American judicial history and a lifetime of inescapable notoriety. Lisa Loomer cuts through the headlines to deliver a clever, comic and poignant portrayal of the two women at the center of one of the most infamous court cases of all time. Taking place from the 1970s to the present with characters on both sides of the issue spanning from decidedly pro-choice to decidedly pro-life, Roe reflects the polarization in America today while illuminating the heart and passion each person has for their cause.

CONTAINS MATURE LANGUAGE AND THEMES.
