Show Details

  • The Good Adoptee at the Shubert Theatre

  • 'r kids is a community partner and the Shubert is proud to provide support to local non-profits during this time of separation.

    Can you imagine not knowing your own identity?
    The Good Adoptee is the riveting true story that chronicles 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”?

    • Link to the virtual theatre production of the award-winning play 
    • Post-Show Talk Back Panel hosted by Randi Rubin Rodriguez,
      'r kids Co-Founder and Executive Director.

    Theater Scene called The Good Adoptee “Superior Writing... 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!”

    This multi-award-winning solo play was last performed on stage at the SJCC in Seattle and has been enjoying a global audience in its virtual presentations including the 2021 launch of National Association of Adoptees and Parents.
