The Abortionist: A Woman Against the Law is more relevant the ever. Based on the scholarship of Rickie Solinger, Joel Gersmann wrote a 1995 play on the life of Ruth Barnett, an abortion provider for 50 years, who “undid, a little, the privileged world of men”, all before Roe v. Wade.

Broom Street Theater’s 2023 revisitation of The Abortionist will be presented in Gersmann’s kinoplastic style. Actors will also play scenery and ‘animated’ inanimate objects (such as chairs with opinions) as well as numerous characters.

Auditions will consist of reading from children’s books and brief scenes from the play.
