One night only - Tuesday August 13, 2019
I think when you hear women speak about their own experience they speak in a way that’s very different than the kind of rhetoric that we usually hear publicly and it is something that’s very rarely heard,” says Cawthorne.
“Women don’t talk about their experience of abortion very openly, they still fear, I think, a lot of judgment and they take a risk if they do that but when they do speak about it, its quite different to what you would expect.” (source)
A community outreach project of PerSIStence Theatre
Tuesday August 13, 2019 - 8pm
72 Harbour Dr, St. John's, NL A1C 1B1
In these monologues, twenty-three women reveal the details of their lives, relationships and families as they tell the stories of their abortions. Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, but always thought provoking,
"The Abortion Monologues" exist in stark contrast to the real world in which women seldom publicly discuss this choice.
PerSIStence Theatre is proud to present Jane Cawthorne's "The Abortion Monologues" as our special community outreach project for this summer.
Limited $20 tickets are available online, with all proceeds going towards the feminist work of PerSIStence Theatre.
Doors open at 7pm with cash bar available and the show starts at 8pm.
The S.P.A.C.E. is located at 72 Harbour Drive, St. John's - our thanks to Wonderbolt for hosting this special performance.
