 §  Comment “The question in the play is, ultimately, who makes  the decision? The play is neither pro-choice nor anti-abortion, but lets the audience make the ‘decision.’  •  The set can be extremely simple.  •  First produced by Babylon Players Theatre Company at the Art Loft Black Box Theatre, St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.

 §  Themes abortion, consent, victimization, pregnancy, rape,  serial rape.
