Whidbey Island Center for the Arts – Audition: ROE by Lisa Loomer, Directed by Rose Woods, Executive Artistic Director Deana Duncan.

VIDEO SUBMISSIONS for Non-Equity (Equity negotiation possible for visiting artist)


Whidbey Island Center for the Arts is thrilled to be one of the first theatres in the nation to win the rights to the newly updated ROE by Lisa Loomer. This brilliant script deals carefully with the original Roe v. Wade case and the newest decision by the Supreme Court. This play reflects the political and social dynamics of a specific historical time period and is based on real people.

From the script:  “…history is a result of shared experiences….and is a reflection of multiple points of view–that are affected by race, religion, gender, sexuality, and class.”

Performance Dates: October 7-22, 2022
