Tuesday, November 13- What is abortion? - Sabin 02, 7 pm- We will discuss what the different abortion procedures are, including when they are performed, how long they take, their costs, safety, and possible complications. These presentations will all be done using models and the information will be from medical professionals.

There are 10 roles available, both males and females are encouraged to audition for all roles.
The production is set in a men's prison and follows the experience of Cyrus, a single father convicted of murder. CONVICT explores the liminal space between guilt and innocence, our expectations of masculinity, and our overcrowded penal system's tendency to punish rather than rehabilitate.
