    Presented by at Davis Square Theatre

    April 5 - April 7, 2014



    Teens. Abstinence. BIEBER.

    MOM BABY GOD follows Jessica Beth Giffords, a 15-year-old girl who is equal parts Justin Bieber superfan and aspiring pro-life celebrity, as she attends the Students for Life of America Conference. Throughout the hour-long solo performance, we follow Jessica as she absorbs the misinformation in a abstinence-only workshop and struggles to contain her crush on a flirtatious Christian boy who sports a purity ring. Six other characters based on real-life pro-life activists--from crisis pregnancy center directors to abstinence-only educators to self-described “pro-life feminists”-- provide humorous, insightful and alarming looks into the anti-abortion movement at a time when reproductive rights are at the center of U.S. political debate.

    Developed by reproductive rights activist, actor and playwright Madeline Burrows, MOM BABY GOD is based on a year of immersive research and interviews at anti-abortion conferences, fundraisers and rallies. Forty years after Roe v. Wade, MOM BABY GOD explores how girls develop a sense of self and sexuality amidst the ongoing political backlash against feminism and reproductive rights.
