Brand New Jew, A DNA Comedy by Monica Bauer

June 24 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

What happens when a DNA test gives an adoptee a brand new view…of herself? Playwright and performer Monica Bauer (Edinburgh Fringe Festival’s “The Year I Was Gifted”) takes on her own unexpected results, along with a cast of comical characters, including a reassuring Rabbi, a Brit who’s not British, and Judy from Atlanta, who may be related to George Clooney. Biology, religion, and culture are all fair game in this Comedy of Identity Errors. Raised Catholic, but expelled from St. Agnes school for heresy, Bauer takes a tour through the Identity Maze and comes out laughing. This event is free and open to the public. 
Monica Bauer is an award-winning playwright whose works have been performed in New York off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway, around the United States (Boulder, Omaha, Detroit, Boston, San Diego and elsewhere), and internationally (Edinburgh, Scotland; Brighton, England). http://www.monicabauer.com
