Abortion Road Trip

by Rachel Lynett

directed by Tracey Erbacher

 

We all have baggage. Sisters Minnie and Lexa bring some of theirs on a road trip—they have hired a taxi driver to take them from Texas to New Mexico so Lexa can get an abortion. Along the way, Minnie and Lexa attempt to mend their relationship as sisters while the driver revisits her tumultuous relationship with her partner, Taylor.

Winner of the Best Comedy award at the 2017 Capital Fringe Festival, this darkly comic production balances biting humor with heavy subject matter to reveal the deeply nuanced nature of women’s friendships, journeys, and reproductive choices. The play explicitly calls for a diverse, all-female cast and primarily features queer characters. 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.

Coming to the Kennedy Center Page-to-Stage New Play Festival on Sunday, Sept 3rd!
