Mrs. Phu's Cleansing Juices (and also Salads)
- by Emily L. Witt
- directed by Krissy Vanderwarker
- Entering Mrs. Phu's means crossing a gauntlet of steadfast Reaganites and pro-lifers. Just on the other side of the trenches lies a world where a waiter wrangles eccentric customers, a hippie lady floats aimlessly, and three very different women gather to receive abortions under the constraints of stringent federal mandates.
- Recommended for mature audiences.
- Themes: How do we move past hatred and towards compassion?
