The Good Adoptee

SAT // OCT 05

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 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. The show has won awards for Best Autobiographical Script and Best Actress 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. Theatre 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!”

The Good Adoptee & JMTC Theatre are thrilled and honored to partner with Adoptees United, Inc.
Adoptees United Inc. is a new adoptee-led national organization. AU has been set up to unify adult adoptees, work to build state-level legislative work within partner organizations, work with inter-country adoptee organizations to assist in securing US citizenship rights, and raise money and resources to help with promoting all of their priorities.  At the heart of what AU does are three interconnected issues: identity, U.S. citizenship, and equality for all adoptees. They will provide expert resources, advocacy and support to organizations committed to these issues.
