Broken Angels


This courtroom drama, set in 1920’s Virginia, is an original play based on the true Supreme Court case of Buck v. Bell. Carrie Buck, a young pregnant girl, is sent to the Lynchburg Colony for the Feebleminded, and is the first candidate under Virginia’s new law to undergo compulsory sterilization for purportedly having "feeble-mindedness." Saddled with a court-appointed attorney, she faces a roomful of witnesses who are eager to see this new law put into practice. Rated PG-13 Presented by The Playgroup, LLC
