Abortion Road Trip

by Rachel Lynett

directed by Tracey Erbacher


In this dark comedy, two sisters hire a taxi to take them on an interstate journey to get an abortion. On the road, past and present collide as they consider the choices that led them to this long cab ride.

The play explicitly calls for a diverse, all-female cast and primarily features queer characters. With its expert handling of heavy subject matter, this dark comedy uses biting humor to reveal the deeply nuanced nature of women’s reproductive choices. Now more than ever, Theatre Prometheus is proud to be choosing a play that explicitly addresses issues of women’s bodily autonomy, race, and LQBTQ identity. We hope that by presenting this story, we can inspire empathy and encourage much-needed social change.
