Event Description

Shadow of Pregnant woman

Roe by Lisa Loomer

Directed by Britannia Howe

Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, is still fiercely debated over 40 years later. In this incisive play, acclaimed writer Lisa Loomer cuts through the headlines and rhetoric to reveal the divergent personal journeys of lawyer Sarah Weddington and plaintiff Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe”) in the years following the fateful decision. In turns shocking, humorous, and poignant, ROE reflects the polarization in America today while illuminating the heart and passion each side has for its cause.

This live performance is performed remotely and hosted via Zoom Webinar. Pre-registration is required.
