The Water Children


By Wendy MacLeod

March 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22

Directed by Ralph Hyman

Is abortion murder? Should the rights of the mother supersede those of the unborn? Would you take an acting job to pay the rent though you disagreed with the message of the piece? These are the tough questions Wendy MacLeod poses in The Water Children, her thought-provoking and funny play. As the battle between pro-life and pro-choice forces rages, the play captures the struggle with wit and compassion for both sides. Along the way a pregnant pro-choice actress, walking the line between ingénue and mom, gets conflicting advice about whether or not to get an abortion from several sources: her quirky gay roommate, her Catholic mom, her flamboyant hairdresser, her unborn son, and her cat. What will she do? The choice is hers…for the time being.
