"Mitzi’s Abortion: A Saint’s Guide To Late-Term Politics And Medicine In America" opens this weekend

The play is called “Mitzi’s Abortion: A Saint’s Guide to Late Term Politics and Medicine in America.” It opens this weekend. 

Co-Directors Colin Thelen and Katie Bakalars joined Daybreak on Wednesday with a preview. 

“It takes place in the early 2000s, and it’s based on a real story of a woman she came across in an article where this woman had to have a late term abortion,” said Bakalars. “She was a military wife and insurance wouldn’t cover it.” 

Bakalars adds that she thinks the playwright does a really nice job of blending reality with a hyperreality of what’s going on in the main character’s mind. 

“There is a mixture of light and dark,” said Bakalars. “There is comedy!” 

The play follows a young woman trying to make an intensely personal decision in a system determined to make it a political one.

“It’s a show that really centers around compassion and coming back to place for finding that for yourself and for others” said Thelen. 

Shows run Thursday through Sunday this weekend (Oct. 27-30) and the next (Nov. 3-6). Performances Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinees will begin at 2:00 p.m. 

Thursday’s performance (Oct. 27) will be a free, preview performance. Donations will be accepted for that performance.
