A Review of Roe by Arena Stage, a co-production with Oregon Shakespeare


Roe v. Wade, Lisa Loomer, Arena Stage, Oregon Shakespeare, Berkeley Repertory, Washington DC, abortion


This performance review examines the Washington, D.C. premiere of Lisa Loomer's Roe, which is a coproduction by Arena Stage, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and Berkeley Repertory. The review explores the way in which the Loomer's play with its exploration of history, and this particular production's rendering of that exploration, has taken on new urgency in the shifting political climate caused by the election of Donald Trump.
