Synopsis

Blood River is set in a post Roe v Wade overturned place where women’s health rights have been reduced significantly. Abortion is illegal and the line between religion and law has blurred to non-existence. Karen rows a boat across the river to a different “state” where women are not prosecuted for putting their lives ahead of their unborn children. Cybele has spent her whole life buying into the beliefs and rules set for her by her religious/conservative parents until her circumstances force her to question everything. Diane is Cybele’s mother and former high school friend of Karen desperate to save her child from the circumstances she herself has cultivated. This world premiere was commissioned by Theatre Kingston from Kingston Playwright Chloe Whitehorn and examines women’s agency and the plight presented by the predatory political agendas of the patriarchy.
