Background


Veteran broadcaster Keith Hindell's new play Dead or Alive? examines abortion at a time when a woman's right to choose is still limited by law, although medical advances have made the procedure safer and easier than ever before.

Synopsis


A pregnant woman ponders whether to abort the twin embryos she is carrying and discusses it directly with them.


One of them wants the right to live, while the other respects her mother's decision.


Her tentative intention to abort is forcefully challenged by a modern prince charming, the putative father.


The situation is further complicated when two strange creatures emerge from "inner space".


Ultimately, the woman must choose the fate of her unborn children.
