WAM Theatre presents ROE

Funded by Mass Humanities
Cost: $15 – $100

Roe

by Lisa Loomer

Directed by Kristen van Ginhoven

October 17-20, 2020

Two Women. Multiple Truths. One Landmark Supreme Court Case.

In keeping with WAM’s double philanthropic mission, a portion of the proceeds will be divided between the Abortion Rights Fund of Western Massachusetts (ARFWM)Railroad Street Youth Project, and SisterSong.

About the play:

ROE is an historically sweeping play with a large ensemble cast that illuminates the history of one of the most polarizing social issues of the modern era, the Roe v. Wade, U.S. Supreme Court ruling that established a woman’s right to an abortion. The play provides a reminder of the human stories behind the debates and how hard we have to work to compassionately communicate with people with whom we may disagree.

This creatively designed digital production of the area premiere of Lisa Loomer’s celebrated play ROE, will be available online October 17-20.  The digital production will be directed by WAM’s Producing Artistic Director, Kristen van Ginhoven. Over the past few months, the extraordinary creative team of ROE has been meeting regularly to dream about how they might tell this story in the time of COVID and the national reckoning with race. What has come of this dreaming is an illuminating digital production that creates the opportunity to blend technology and performance and collaborate with new artists in the video and website design worlds.
