Whose Family Values!: A Play in One Act
Charles Boyd is a rabid anti-abortion activist with ingrained racist attitudes. His eldest son Bruce abhors these views. In fact, his first-hand experiences working with underprivileged young people have deepened his pro-choice stance. He returns home for the first time in twenty years for his brother's wedding and sparks fly, especially when Bruce learns that his father is in contact with a man who is threatening to bomb a Planned Parenthood center and has not called the police. The arrival of Bruce's black girlfriend, an articulate young social worker who has had an abortion and passionately defends her decision, adds another explosive dimension to this exploration of what actions are justified in defense of your beliefs.
