The Ottawa Premier!
The Abortion Monologues reveals an aspect of women’s lives that is usually undiscussed. In this staged reading, 20 fictional women discuss their experiences and reveal the complex, often ambivalent and contradictory responses they have to their situations. In doing so, they reveal their lives and the human condition. Whatever your thoughts on this issue are, wherever you rest on the spectrum of belief, this play challenges you to think again about what you believe and why you believe it.
