Out From Under The Rug



Live storytelling series, Oral Fixation (An Obsession with True Life Tales), is coming to Austin to eradicate stigma around abortion by sharing stories that have been swept under the rug. Think of a spotlight, a music stand and seven people reading aloud their true, personal abortion-related stories on the ZACH Theatre’s Topfer Stage. This carefully curated evening features a largely local lineup whose stories will enlighten and ultimately uplift viewers.

Time: 8pm-9:30pm

2520 Flora St, Dallas TX 75201
