Last night, I attended the final dress rehearsal of Out of Silence: Abortion Stories from the 1 in 3 Campaign. It was wonderful to experience the culmination of months of work. The playwrights have honored these stories and the cast is doing such an magnificent job in bringing these characters to life. As I watched the production elements take shape, I was reminded of the power of storytelling and how critical it is for all the theatrical elements to come together in service of the narrative. The entire team came back together again today to do final touches and I look forward to watching the play with a larger audience. Of course, I'll keep you posted on next steps for the plays and the upcoming tour. For now, please enjoy these production photos by Lloyd Wolf of our talented cast Shay Blass, Celeste Jones, Jon Hudson Odom, Tuyet Thi Pham, and Fatima Quander.
