The Good Adoptee: Multi-Award-Winning Internationally Acclaimed Solo Show
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 the truth of her origins and 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”?


The Good Adoptee 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. The show 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 and now successful legislative efforts of Access Connecticut, to the 400-seat SJCC in Seattle and to global audiences in its virtual presentations including the 'r kids Fundraiser at The Shubert. The Good Adoptee recently made its triumphant return to live performance on stage at the CUB Retreat in Tampa, FL followed by a show and All-Star Panel event at The Kraine Theater in NYC.


"A story is rarely so personal and it has a very healthy amount of laugh-out-loud-humour!”
– Sadie takes the Stage, London UK


"Nardizzi delivers jokes and emotion with the same amount of mastery...Bachner’s script took us to the point where we started to feel like we were right next to her heart.”
– The Young-Howze Theatre Journal


"Superior writing…A spellbinding emotional detective story!”
– Theater Scene


"A powerful show that the entire world needs to see!”
– Suz Bednarz, writingmywrongs


"The Good Adoptee is everything you want a solo show to be: well-crafted, lovingly performed and thoroughly entertaining!”
– Hi Drama
