The ‘Vitae Monologues’ reveal real-life effects of abortion
A new play called the VITAE Monologues aims to portray the traumatic effects of abortion in “real-life” stories about women and men.
The two-person drama depicts “powerful stories of hope and healing and the triumphant beauty of human life within our broken and wounded culture,” according to its creators. It also aims at engaging audiences in “a powerful, non-political” way to help them think about the controversial subject of abortion from a new perspective.
The VITAE Monologues debuted at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota in early March.
“I walked out of the auditorium feeling like I’d been turned inside out. I was wiping away tears,” said one audience member. “This is a powerful play, but the word ‘Play’ doesn’t fit. This is drama. These are real stories from real people.” (MORE)
