Docent Talk with Berkeley Rep: Roe 

When: Sat., March 18, 1-2 p.m. 2017
Price: Free
www.oaklandlibrary.org
A docent will talk about Berkeley Repertory Theatre’s current production, Roe. Roe v. Wade—the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion is still fiercely debated, over 40 years later. In her newest 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 person has for their cause.
