Remarkably Normal by Jessi Blue Gormezano
Commissioned by Advocates for Youth
A documentary play about contemporary experiences with abortion care. Remarkably Normal received an eight city national tour in the summer of 2016 produced by Advocates for Youth.
The play gives its audience the chance to rise above the political fray and to focus on the personal, putting voices to a powerful number. As one character says, “There are no good abortions or bad abortions. There’s just abortions, and people need them."
"It’s a very divisive topic. I am not interested in telling anyone what to think. This is not a public service announcement, it’s a play...art can open minds in a way that goes beyond slogans and statistics."
