Can you imagine not knowing your own identity?

 

The Good Adoptee is award-winning playwright Suzanne Bachner’s true story of her intrepid and relentless search for her birth parents in the face of New York State's sealed records. Suzanne must overcome both external and internal challenges: an officious social worker, her loyalty to her beloved Mom and Dad, the temptation to become her own Identity Thief and an outrageous Jersey reality show genealogist. The play is anti-secrecy, anti-closed records, pro-adoptee rights and pro-all parents. Once she opens Pandora’s Box, can she find a way to integrate her dual identities and still remain the Good Adoptee?
