Extensive Connecticut Tour Coinciding

Can you imagine not knowing your own identity? That’s the reality for millions of adoptees and the focus of the award-winning show, The Good Adoptee, which tours Connecticut this fall to help garner support for restoring Connecticut adoptees’ access to their original birth certificates.


The tour will run October 22 to December 9 with at total of 9 shows, coinciding with National Adoption Awareness Month and will benefit Access Connecticut’s adoptee rights efforts. Each performance will include a post-show Talk Back with playwright, director & adoptee, Suzanne Bachner and star & ally, Anna Bridgforth. All proceeds from the tour will go to Access Connecticut.

The Connecticut tour of The Good Adoptee is sponsored by Access Connecticut Now – the grassroots organization committed to restoring adult adoptee's right to know their original identity; and Calo Programs, an extraordinary family of programs, all dedicated to healing the effects of early trauma.


Access Connecticut is a grassroots organization dedicated to restoring the right of every adult adoptee born in Connecticut to access their true, original birth certificate. In 2014, Access Connecticut led lobbying efforts that resulted in legislation allowing access for adoptees whose adoptions were finalized after Oct. 1, 1983. Now the group is working to join the ever-increasing number of states (including Connecticut’s New England neighbors of Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island) that allow unrestricted access to adult adoptees. www.AccessConnecticut.org



Calo Programs is a family of programs specialized in addressing the dysfunctional patterns that arise due to early trauma, particularly families with adopted children. Calo Programs is comprised of Calo Teens, Calo Preteens, Calo Young Adults, Embark Workshops and Intensives and New Vision Wilderness. www.CaloPrograms.com
