Roe by Lisa Loomer – A reading of the play*
This is a reading of the play with no staging. Run time is approximately 2 hours, including a short intermission.
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.
The Jewish Studies for a Better World Series is sponsored by The Fischer Family Jewish Studies for a Better World Fund, The Bertram and Charlotte Cooper Adult Education Fund, and The Andrew Seitel Memorial Fund. In partnership with Hadassah Minneapolis St. Paul, NCJW Minnesota and Women of Adath.
*The reading of Roe is presented in partnership with Adath’s TAMID (Theater, Arts, Music, Israel, Dance) Committee. ROE is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatists Play Service collection. (www.dramatists.com)
