Baby Mama: One Woman's Quest to Give Her Child to Gay People

written and performed by Mariah MacCarthy / directed by Sara Lyons

Baby Mama: One Woman’s Quest to Give Her Child to Gay People tracks one birth mother’s true adoption journey, from conception to placement with the gay couple of her dreams—while still living her life, dating, and attending the occasional orgy. From adoption agencies to vaginal discharge, from burlesque to good­byes, this intimate night of storytelling is up close and personal. Winner of The Dr. Robert J. Thierauf Producer’s Pick Award of the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. Bring hankies.
