Theatre Arts Student Artist Series

"Roe" — a play about Roe v. Wade

The Theatre Arts and Dance Department presents a staged reading of "Roe" by Lisa Loomer. "Roe" follows the history of the controversial U.S. Supreme Court decision through the eyes of the participants involved, including Norma McCorvey, aka Jane Roe, and Sarah Weddington, the lawyer who presented the original case before the court. "Roe" has been presented at numerous theaters across the county. The playwright updated the script to reflect the recent Supreme Court decision to uphold a Mississippi law that bans most abortions after 15 weeks, thereby overturning the constitutional right to abortion established by Roe v. Wade.

Tickets are free. No reservations are needed.
