Genre: Drama
written by Jonathan Reynolds

In this bold drama, Mr. Reynolds, whose previous controversial play, Stonewall Jackson’s House (short listed for the Pulitzer Prize), took on issues of racial victimization, has turned his attention to women's rights and abortion. Performances, originally schedule to end March 15, will now continue through April 11th.

GIRLS IN TROUBLE dares to explore the controversial history of abortion through its life-changing affect on women across three generations. This darkly humorous, shocking new work continues to inspire spirited debate.

GIRLS IN TROUBLE features 7 actors from The Bats, the resident acting company of The Flea: Andy Gershenzon, Brett Aresco, Betsy Lippitt, Akyiaa Wilson, Eboni Booth, Laurel Holland and Marshall York. The design team includes John McDermott (sets), Zack Tinkelman (lights), Amanda Bujak (costumes) and Jeremy Wilson (sound).
