Abortion Road Trip
by Rachel Lynett
directed by Jess McLeod
cast featuring Francis Benhamou, Carmen LoBue, Rami Margron, Emma Ramos, and Shayna Small
Sisters Minnie and Lexa hire Driver to take them on a road trip from Houston to Albuquerque for Lexa to get an abortion. While on their journey, the three women discuss the baggage they carry with them and how the circumstances leading to three very different abortions shaped them into who they are.
Representatives from the Elizabeth Freeman Center in the Berkshires will join director Jess McLeod for a special WTF-led panel discussion of Abortion Road Trip. The discussion will immediately follow the reading of the play’s first act. Panelists will share resources and information on reproductive rights.
