ROE by Lisa Loomer

Directed by Mark Valdez

 

ROE, a theatrical survey of the complicated and fiery underpinnings of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that established a woman’s right to an abortion.Roe precisely illustrates the fractured and fracturing history of one of the most polarizing social issues of the modern era.

 

Sarah Weddington was a 26-year-old lawyer when she argued Roe v. Wade. Norma McCorvey was a 22-year-old hard-living lesbian bartender seeking to end her third pregnancy when she agreed to be the plaintiff under the pseudonym “Jane Roe”. Decades later she would renounce her involvement in the case and became an pro-life advocate.

 

ROE is an historically sweeping play that takes this inflammatory American issue head-on.

 

ROE is produced with two principals and an ensemble of seven versatile actors.
