Lord of the Underworld's Home for Unwed Mothers

Written by Louisa Hill (resident playwright)

Winner of the Mark Twain Award for Playwriting from the Kennedy Center, this highly theatrical and poetically raw play unearths the roots of reproductive justice.
Knocked up as a teenager, Dee finally meets the baby she gave up for adoption. Only thing is, the baby is now 25, really into death metal, and wants nothing to do with her.
