The DC Abortion Fund is excited to be part of the world premiere of Sioux Falls by Megan Dominy, a local playwright and actress. The play examines abortion access in a controversial culture war with humor and humanity.
A hopeful mother-to-be, a disaffected student, and an abused wife are all seeking an unusual destination: Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The reason? Sioux Falls is the only clinic in the state which offers abortion services. Connected by a common need but little else, the three women’s paths unexpectedly cross and collide, as they battle personal demons, prophetic mermaids, and bureaucratic red tape. Sioux Falls destroys the simple narrative of who we expect women seeking abortion to be. Instead, it explores the complexity behind this difficult choice and how well government policies can adapt to human intricacy.
The play runs from May 19 through June 11. On Sunday, May 28, a DCAF representative will speak during the discussion after the play—and on June 4, a percentage of proceeds from the play will go directly to DCAF!
