“Roe.” a play by Lisa Loomer (UNCG Theatre) March 24 – 25 at 7:30 p.m. March 26 & April 2 at 2:00 p.m. March 30 – April 1 at 7:30 p.m.
Pam and David Sprinkle Theatre (Brown Building), 402 Tate St, Greensboro, NC 27412
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. –Dramatist Play Service
