"Roe" is the human story behind of one of the most consequential and controversial Supreme Court decisions ever. 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.
