The Club by Kendra Fanconi from Theatre Yes' National Elevator Project

A sample from the script: "When I had my son, I remember walking sorta stunned into the city and seeing the people and thinking, “O God, all of us were BORN, every single one of us, that is how we all got here. There is no other way.”
