    A fantastic story about community and a subject that connects more people than you probably think. The characters are all unique and well-written. I could not put the script down until it was over.

    Rachel is a really good writer. We produced this play at Stella Adler Studio of Acting NY in 2021. Great roles for women. Complex, beautifully drawn characters. A wonderful mix of humor and heartache. An uplifting story.

    A heartfelt peek inside the lives of three women on the road trip of life that brings a highly politicized issue to the human level that is needed to understand and empathize. It could easily be any one of us.

    Something small and simple turns into a greater exploration of past-and-future, tinged with a sweet humor and emotions big and small.

    Loved this play and this playwright's voice. Read it start to finish in one sitting. The dialogue is funny and real and the theatricality adds to the feeling of being on a journey to a future with these characters while at the same time stopping for visits with the past.

    While the subject matter may be serious, this play tempers it with humor and sensitivity. The two sisters, their driver, and the other people in their lives weave an intricate narrative of past regrets and future hope. A breathtakingly beautiful piece.

    “Abortion Road Trip” is a highly theatrical adventure about much more than getting an abortion, although that would be enough. Deep secrets between friends and family are revealed and faced head on as the young women make their way to New Mexico in a cab driven by a woman who has secrets of her own to add to the mix. There are enough abortions in the pasts of the characters, with all the justifications and ramifications examined and discussed. It’s a play that should be produced across the country.

    Truly an awesome play--Lynett crafts several very compelling characters and places them in a potent and plausible situation. I love the way in which information is slowly revealed about various characters throughout (even to those related by blood and supposedly the closest!) through organic conversation and well used flashback and aside scenes. One of the play's biggest strengths is its totally human and humorous approach to big ideas and issues--it makes a political statement (several even) with a small and fairly self contained story. I would love to see this produced all over the country soon!

    This play is like a ticking time bomb. The closer we get to the characters, and the closer they get to their destination, the more the tension builds up. Ultimately though, it ends on a hopeful note.

    Truly a play about the things left unsaid. It's about characters who learn to be happy and who "celebrate the day they took their bodies back". Lovely, moving, funny, and relatable.

    I love this play. It feels like you're sitting on the couch with your best friend talking about everything and nothing when you read it. The characters are so complex and compelling, I would sit through many a road trip with any of them. The theatricality of time and space in this play is so brilliant. It's funny and sad and it made me think of the women and girls I've been close to and hope that I've done okay by them when they needed me. Please please produce this play immediately, somewhere near me! Wonderful work.
