The Colony (Stage Play)
by Gina Stevensen @gina_stevensen
In 1924 Virginia, a dirt-poor young woman named Carrie Buck is brought to a mysterious medical facility. No one will tell her why she’s here, or where her two-month-old daughter is. The Doctor in charge is a charming progressive, a student of the new science of heredity and genes. In Carrie, he finds the missing link his entire movement has been searching for, placing her at the center of an unbelievable chain of events that will lead all the way to the Supreme Court. Based on true events, "The Colony" asks the question: how does our society, past and present, regulate the bodies of women deemed "undesirable"?
