Audience members, VA

“I loved it and the groups of gals I went with loved it, too. The people I went with were all NYU students — myself included.   It’s amazing how hyper-political abortion is right now….  Thank you for showing it — it was a wonderful way to celebrate Roe’s anniversary.  I’d love to see it for a second time!” NYU student

“I want to personally thank you for the ‘Words of Choice’ dramatic presentation.  The direction and acting were superb and the audience was extremely responsive to the subject matter.  This was our best meeting ever.” Vicki Saporta, National Abortion Federation

“I have continued to hear such good feedback from people about how much they like the performance… Thanks so much.” CEO, Planned Parenthood affiliate

Words of Choice was truly a blessing. It motivated me to keep organizing in my community, made me realize that there are people in other parts of the country who haven’t forgotten that there are grassroots organizers in the midwest. The play was inspirational, the actors were phenomenal.  It was a night not to be forgotten, and I will never think about reproductive choice in the same way again.”  Student, Kansas

“I can’t say enough how much it was my pleasure…. As an attorney, I am always approaching the issue as a legal matter, and it was terrific to be reminded of what women go through.”  Jill Morrison, National Women’s Law Center

“I (want to tell) you how educational WoC was for my son when we saw it a couple of years ago. He was 15 then and he didn’t know that women self-aborted with coat hangers. It really moved him. And, I think, re-emphasized the need to be a responsible young man with regards to sex.” Audience member, NJ

“Congratulations on a piece that gets better and finer and tougher each time I see it. Really tough and honest. I especially love the part about the Viagra. It’s so badly needed!” Audience member, NY
