Jackie and Harriet look at baby Daniel during a rehearsal for "She Said/She Said."

"She Said/She Said" -- a new play at The Catholic University of America -- focuses on a rather distinctive custody dispute. WAMU education reporter Kavitha Cardoza recently attended a rehearsal of the play, and she says while the piece weaves together theology, law and politics, at heart, it's a story about love, a break-up and a battle for a baby.
