From New Play Exchange:
The Clinic is an ensemble piece depicting abortion providers lives over the course of nine months in Wichita, Kansas. Lorrie Daniels, a meticulous transient abortionist, flies in each Saturday to Wichita Women’s Health, one of the last clinics in the state and a battleground for reproductive freedom since the notorious 1991 Summer of Mercy protests. Recently nominated for an Ethical Humanist Award, Lorrie’s perfect career as provider and medical researcher is at its height. She has learned, along with the clinic’s multi-generational staff, to contend with the escalating conflict from outside forces, including hostile protesters, state legislature/TRAP laws, and even respite from the local authorities. However, seemingly stupid pranks escalate as a Crisis Pregnancy Center sets up shop across the street. When Lorrie’s identity becomes public knowledge, the threats grow more personal until the entire staff’s lives are turned upside down one day and they are faced with providing services under impossible conditions.
