About The Play…
Monroe is planning a surprise party for her bestie Jade complete with decorations, chocolate cupcakes, puns and 20 giftbags full of surprises. However, the biggest surprise is that she’s planning to give herself a home-concocted abortion. Set in a future America where even saying the word “abortion” is a crime, this play is about loyalty, friendship, and the value of life. A National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere. Funny, Like An Abortion was originally developed with PlayGround’s 25th and 26th Festival of New Works with Jim Kleinmann as Artistic Director.
