“Spare Rib, a quasi-comic drama about abortion.” – Rebecca Mead, The New Yorker
Spare Rib a benefit reading for WRRAP – October 24 @ 7:30 pm New World Stages- follows two generations of abortion providers: Harriet, a member of the underground collective Jane in the early 1970’s, and Florynce, her daughter who is a contemporary abortion provider. The action rockets between three distinctive eras, early 1970’s, 30 years later and the present. Members of the cast play multiple roles as they time-bend and genre-bend, and naturalism collides with surrealism.
