Dear Margaret Sanger

Featuring music and lyrics by acclaimed singer/songwriter Inara George and Grammy nominated composer Larry Goldings, and a book by celebrated writer and director Jennifer Chang, the musical is inspired by the letters of real women to birth control activist, sex educator, writer and nurse Margaret Sanger, whose advocacy for both reproductive choice and the insidious eugenics movement reverberates through the decades.
