“The Turn Away Play”

May 8 @ 7:00 pm May 19 @ 5:00 pm

An urgent issue comes to life onstage in “The Turn Away Play at the Kitchen Theatre.
Lesley Greene was inspired by Diana Greene Foster’s groundbreaking Turnaway Study, which followed 1,000 women over ten years and reached the first definitive scientific conclusions about the consequences for women’s lives of either having or being denied abortions. Greene transforms the real-life stories into a powerful drama animated by characters whose diverse circumstances reflect the scope of womens’ experiences. With honesty and humor, the play reaches beyond our polarizing political conversation to look deeply into one of the most important and urgent issues of our time.
