Following on my post last week about the Kermit Gosnell-type abortion atrocity in our nation’s capital, comes word about an off-Broadway play, Oh Gosnell, opening this Thursday night, May 5, after efforts to censor it.
The author, Phelim MacAleer, explains that “Oh Gosnell is a Verbatim Play using only the transcripts of the trial and Grand Jury.” It’s May 5 opening is intended to counter the opening the same night of JJ Abram’s and Ilana Glazer’s “abortion comedy,” Oh God, A Show About Abortion.
“They laugh about it – we tell the truth about it,” MacAleer says.
Theatre Row in Manhattan, where Oh Gosnell was scheduled to open, abruptly cancelled the play just two weeks before its scheduled opening. It will instead open at the Chain Studio Theater at 312 West 36th Street in Manhattan. For scheduled showings and to purchase tickets, click here.
The Thursday night opening will also feature a Q&A after the performance with narcotics detective Jim Wood, who will recount his experience helping bring down Dr. Kermit Gosnell after an informant told him about the death of an immigrant female patient at Gosnell’s clinic.
With the abortion debate raging across the nation in anticipation of the coming Supreme Court decision, and with courageous pro-lifers facing charges for trying to expose the Gosnell-type atrocity currently unfolding in D.C., it is essential that we spread the word about the true, horrific nature of what abortion does to women and children. This play can help to do that, but only if a good opening night turnout allows it to extend and expand its run.
If you’re in the New York area, please try to attend Thursday night’s opening.
