Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, is still fiercely debated over forty 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 material is potentially sensitive. ROE deals with strong emotions, viewpoints, and themes surrounding the landmark Roe v Wade case and abortion. It also contains descriptions of sexual assault/rape, mentions of drug use, mentions of suicide. This play is intended for mature audiences.
