Roe

By LISA LOOMER | Directed by LAVINA JADHWANI

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

As the U.S. adjusts to a new administration and millions of women march in solidarity around the world, Roe emerges at a pivotal time in our nation’s history. The lawyer: a young, brilliant, courageous woman arguing Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court. The plaintiff: a hard-living, single woman who, in 1969, found herself poor and pregnant for a third time. The landmark 1973 case legalized abortion, but also began these women’s unforeseen transformations that would come to mirror the polarization in American culture. With shocking turns and surprising humor, Roe illuminates the difficult choices women make and the passion each side has for its cause.
