Mitzi's Abortion (A Saint's Guide to Late-Term Politics and Medicine in America) by Elizabeth Heffron
With humor, intelligence and honesty, Mitzi's Abortion explores the questions that have shaped the national debate over abortion, and reminds us that whatever we may think we believe, some decisions are neither easy nor simple when they become ours to make. This play is a generous and compassionate comedy with serious themes about a young woman trying to make an intensely personal decision in a system determined to make it a political one. For more info about the play, check out this Ithaca Times article.
This show will run February 16 at 7:30pm, February 17 at 8pm and February 18 at 8pm. All performances take place at Risley Theatre, Cornell University. Tickets $15 general and $10 for students and seniors; please call Ticket Center Ithaca 273.4497. Any tickets not sold through Ticket Center will be sold at the Risley Theatre box office on the evening of the show for $20.
