What Happened to Tom (stageplay)


A (feminist) allegorical drama about reproductive rights, showing the critical importance of access to contraception and abortion …

A man, Tom, wakes up to find his body’s been hijacked and turned into a human kidney dialysis machine: he must stay connected for nine months or Simon will die.

Tom loses a promotion, then his job, his girlfriend, his car, his apartment.

Against his will and despite his struggles, his life is completely, and irrevocably, derailed.
