Brand-New Jew, a DNA Comedy
  • Edinburgh Fringe

What happens when a DNA test gives an adoptee a brand-new view of herself? Playwright and performer Monica Bauer (The Year I Was Gifted) takes on her own unexpected results, along with a cast of comical characters including a reassuring Rabbi, a Brit whos not British and Judy from Atlanta, who may be related to George Clooney. Biology, religion, and culture are all fair game for 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.
