About The Play
Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, is still fiercely debated nearly 50 years later, especially in light of the recent SCOTUS decision. 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 turn shocking, humorous, and poignant, ROE reflects the polarization in America today while illuminating the heart and passion each side has for its cause.
Thank you to the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) for the grant that made this possible!
