In this incisive play, acclaimed playwright Lisa Loomer cuts through the pithy headlines and explosive rhetoric to illuminate the human stories behind Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion. Shocking, humorous, and poignant, ROE reveals the divergent private journeys of two Texas natives in the years following the court’s monumental ruling: attorney Sarah Weddington, who argued the case at the Supreme Court at the age of 26, and plaintiff Norma McCorvey (“Jane Roe”). ROE holds up a microphone to the voices of vastly different Americas, where the verdict has echoed from hushed conversations to primetime news.
