Wandsworth Arts Fringe – MEGAN EARL THE MORAL WOMEN

The year is 2027 and the United Kingdom has regressed in a multitude of ways. Healthcare demands extortionate fees, particularly the cost of having a child.

The opportunists who are in charge of the collapsed economy found child birth to be the most efficient way to extract money from citizens.

Women’s reproductive rights in the United Kingdom have been jeopardised; all choices that opposed the new regime are abolished. To quietly reject this system, many clinics are illegally developed and privately funded; becoming a safe haven for women to make their own choices over their bodies.

‘The Moral Women’ is set in the lead up to a raid that occurs at Feminam Clinic. We observe four patients and a receptionist, as they enter the clinic to share their stories and connections to one another, before encountering a potentially fatal end.
