A 20 Stories High and Contact co-production about young women and abortion.

“I told my mum I was going on an R.E. trip and I needed to be at Piccadilly Bus Station for seven o’clock in the morning, in order to get to the clinic by half past eight…”

What do you know about abortion? What do you think about it? Why can we debate it as an idea, but not talk about it as an experience?

With 1 in 3 U.K. women having had an abortion “I told my mum I was going on an R.E. trip…” explores what seems to be one of society’s last taboos. A multi-talented young female ensemble use verbatim voices, live music, beats and rhyme to portray the stories of real women who’ve experienced pregnancy and abortion. This funny, frank, and moving new play is about as far from a worthy sexual health lecture as is imaginable.
