"These writings spark the imagination and stir the soul"

Short Plays on Reproductive Freedom offers 34 short works for performance to recognize and celebrate the fundamental human right to bodily autonomy -- now available as an easy-to-download ebook for all e-readers.

From a wide diversity of writers, the works in this powerful collection, each approximately five minutes long, explore reproductive rights, health, freedom and justice. These beautiful works generate vibrant new conversations on vital topics that are at the forefront of public discussions today. 

These writings spark the imagination and stir the soul, and are rewarding reading, alone or in a group. 

The various works address pregnancy, abortion, contraception, birthing, adoption, parenthood, nonparenthood, healthcare, politics, imprisonment, aging, rape, racism, street harassment, activism, stigma, antiabortion terrorism, friendship, imagined futures and all-too-real pasts. 

The writings engage readers and listeners with storytelling of all sorts and types. 

The selections include monologues and dialogue-driven work, spoken word, performable essays, poems and lyrics, both comedic and dramatic. 

At a time where our reproductive freedoms are being challenged and stigmatized, these selections raise the voices of talented writers on human rights and social justice.

The volume is curated by theater artist and producer Cindy Cooper with artistic consultant and director Stacey Linnartz, both based in New York City.
