The first act of the play focuses on three women who meet every week on a playground so that their children can play together. This week, the discussion revolves around a pregnancy and whether or not abortion should be legal. The second act is a stand-up routine by Jesus, the Son of God, and Mary, His mother.

The play is overtly political and pro-choice.
