"Mercy Ride" follows three characters on a search for freedom, whatever the hell that means. Can you find freedom in the open road? In the eyes of your lover? In the shadowed privacy of your own small room?

"Mercy Ride" is the workshop performance of a new script created by the participants in the "Room of our Own" project. This production is the culmination of four months of collaborative and individual new work creation by a team of 13 female performing artists curious about sexuality and gender.
