Part of AKA’s 25th Annual Conference:

"Coming Home to Your Self"

World Premiere and Sold Out Run in the United Solo Theatre Festival 2015 • Theatre Row • NYC

Winner • Best Autobiographical Script Award • Suzanne Bachner

 

Winner • Best Actress Award • Anna Bridgforth

 

The show was presented during National Adoption Awareness Month and JMTC Theatre partnered with Advocating Legislation for the Adoption Reform Movement (ALARM) to raise both funds and awareness.  A portion of the proceeds was donated to this not-for-profit organization and in conjunction with the performances, signatures were collected for the Petition calling for an Executive Order to restore Original Birth Certificates to All Adult Adoptees.

Can you imagine not knowing your own identity?

 

The Good Adoptee is the riveting and outrageous true story of

award-winning playwright Suzanne Bachner’s search for her

birth parents in the face of New York State's sealed records.

Once she opens Pandora’s Box, can she find a way to integrate

her dual identities and still remain “the Good Adoptee”?

This multi-award-winning show is performed by acclaimed

Off Broadway actor Hayley Palmer.

 

The Good Adoptee has toured to the London International

Fringe Festival and all over the U.S., including a 7-week 9-city

Connecticut tour to support the vital legislative efforts of

Access Connecticut. Suzanne’s play has won awards for

Best Autobiographical Script and Best Actress for original star

Anna Bridgforth when it premiered in the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City. It was also named a Best Play by Indie Theater Now and is included in ITN’s Plays and Playwrights 2017 anthology.

 

Theater Scene called The Good Adoptee “A spellbinding emotional detective story!” and Hi Drama raved: “The Good Adoptee is everything you want a solo show to be: well crafted, lovingly performed and thoroughly entertaining!”

We are thrilled and honoured to partner with Origins Canada. A portion of the proceeds of our London Fringe run of THE GOOD ADOPTEE was donated to this incredible organization. Origins Canada is a 100% volunteer-run non-profit organization serving people across Canada who have been separated from family members by adoption.
