The Playwrights' Center of San Francisco (PCSF) presents "Repro Rights!," a provocative evening of staged readings of short plays and monologues by San Francisco Bay Area playwrights to benefit Planned Parenthood. The event takes place Monday, October 22, 2012, at 7:30 p.m. at Brava! for Women in the Arts, 2781 24th Street, San Francisco. Tickets are $25, available online at bit.ly/TS2JFT.

All proceeds from this volunteer-driven event will go to the nonprofit Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the largest U.S. provider of basic health and reproductive health services, including cancer screening, HIV and sexually-transmitted infections screening and counseling, contraception, and abortion. PCSF's evening of readings is prompted by a recent wave of legislative action aimed at limiting existing reproductive rights for U.S. women. In 2011, state legislatures introduced more than 1,100 anti-abortion provisions. Seven states either fully defunded or made moves toward defunding Planned Parenthood, whose low-income clientele will be most affected by restrictions on women's access to affordable healthcare.

The seven short plays and monologues that comprise "Repro Rights!" examine the human dilemma at the heart of the polarized political issue.

"Repro Rights!" is produced by Tracy Held Potter, artistic director of All Terrain Theater, and dramaturgy is provided by Christine Young.

Playwrights will be Rachel Bublitz, Dana Sack, Margy Kahn, Ignacio Zulueta, Jeremy Cole, Jennifer Lynne Roberts, and Megan Cohen. Directed by Brady Brophy-Hilton, Michaela Goldhaber, and Neil Higgins.
