Court Disorder: Roe, reviewed.

My review of Lisa Loomer’s Roe — an “openly didactic wiki-play” that was never meant to be as timely as it is — is in this week’s Washington City Paper.

This would’ve been a good one to discuss with the student critics I had the privilege of working with at the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival last week. Usually I’m loath to summarize the plot of a play, or to foreground my own political leanings in a review. But when the plot is a history, and our politics desperate, that puts one in a bind.
