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.
Please note, this play contains adult themes and content.
