Premiering Thursday, October 13 at 7pm ET

Prompted by the recent dismantling of the protections laid out in Roe v Wade, four of Company One Theatre’s Volt Lab playwrights — all playwrights of color, all rising voices of the American theatre — are writing responsively on the theme of Reproductive Liberty and Body Justice for All. Each writer has chosen one item from the National Network of Abortion Funds’ list of demands as a jumping off point for a short play and exploration of the actions we can take together for a more just society.

Join our digital watch party on Thursday, October 13 at 7pm ET to watch the plays in community and take action with us!

Jared Bowen, WGBH

"If a production is bold, exciting, and makes me feel alive, chances are it’s a Company One production.

Christopher Ehlers, DigBoston
