Feeling pissed and helpless about the current blight of abortion bans? We're right there with ya. Join us for an emergency reading of Calamity West's In the Canyon to benefit the Yellowhammer Fund, which "provides funding for anyone seeking care at one of Alabama's three abortion clinics and will help with other barriers to access."

Originally staged at Jackalope in 2018, the show spans from 2007-2067 and explores the horrifying implications of illegalized abortion as time passes and society atomizes. Of the initial production, the Chicago Tribune called the show "raw" and gave it 3.5 stars; you'll probably call it "WAY TOO REAL."

Now, we've assembled most of the original cast for a one-night-only reading of the play under the direction of Elly Green — Come sit in solidarity and support a hella worthy cause. Tickets available here:

Actor 4: Liz Sharpe
Actor 5: Shariba Rivers
