About this show

Roe v. Wade — the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion is still fiercely debated more than 40 years later. In this 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 that different people have for their causes.
