WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Alice is happy for the first time in years. After a difficult divorce, she has a new love in her life, she is raising a beloved adopted daughter, and her career is blossoming. Then, she starts experiencing mysterious symptoms. After months of tests, X-rays, and inconclusive diagnoses, she is sent for an emergency CAT scan that revealed the truth: she is six months pregnant. At age 44, with no prenatal care and no insurance coverage for a high-risk pregnancy, Alice is besieged by opinions from doctors and friends about what is ethical, loving, and right. What I Thought I Knew is a dark comedy, performed by one actress playing 40 roles. The play grapples with complex issues--including women's reproductive rights and our country's healthcare system--in a deeply personal and non-polemical way. It strikes a powerful cord with audience members, inspiring public engagement and conversation across the political spectrum.
