"In a city of standout solo performers, Julia Jackson can hang with any of them."
   - SF Theaterblog

" Writer-performer and comedian Julia Jackson's well acted and consistently funny autobiographical solo show details her and her female partner's attempt to adopt a newborn girl from a young African American mother in Florida."
    - SF Bay Guardian

   - SF Chronicle

W H A T   T H E   S H O W   I S   A B O U T:

Julia never bought a baby before. Okay, she's adopting, but the agency sure makes her feel like she's buying a baby. Couples competing in the free market of love. Bad ovaries but good credit? Step right up! Did you know some kids are discounted? A black baby--which is what Julia and her wife are seeking costs 1/2 of a white baby. Almost makes Julia and Amy want to run out and start a chapter of the Black Panthers - and Amy's white!

The one saving grace is that the waiting time for adopting a black child is six months instead of the two years it takes for a white baby. Oh wait, a gay couple? Make that a year. What's that? Julia is a recovering alcoholic? And she's insisting on including that info in their Dear Birth Mother letter? Make that anywhere between 2 years and . . . Hilary Clinton's second term

But only five days after signing the contract (non-refundable) at the adoption agency, a bomb drops - a birth mother has chosen Julia and Amy to raise her newborn baby daughter. And by the way, she's in labor. In Atlanta. Good news abounds.

The running time for the show is 90 minutes. There will be one intermission. No one under 16 will be admitted.

Monty Mitra 
"The Last Hindu"
Can’t a kid just be crappy at sports and a total nerd to get picked on? You know, like the good old days? Not if Jesus has anything to say about it. From gym classes to grocery store parking lots, Monty confronts the realities of being a Texas-born Hindu - a religion you may know more about than he does.

Sarah Elovich
“If anything, Karaoke will betray you"
Sarah can’t stop picking her scabs, but she’s downright compulsive about the one on her heart. The breakup was painful enough - now her attempts to heal just make everything worse. Is there a bandaid big enough for the mess she’s made? Only the Karaoke gods can help her now.

Phil Surkis  
"Try This Butter,I'm Sure It's Still Good"
Sometimes racism thrives in the most unlikely places, like, Phil’s mom. What did Phil do to change his dyed in the wool liberal Jewish mom, into a...dyed in the wool liberal Jewish mom who also doesn’t like black people? Not much, except fall in love. Who knew?

Jessie Rose Cohen 
“I love condiments and lady bugs. I hate everyone.” 
Jessie loves condiments. She also loves pickles and bacon and lady bugs. She hates that people she respects might find her superficial for wishing she had a huge house overlooking a cliff. Jessie also HATES meetings. If they bring up the broken copier once more she might implode. The only ONLY solution is to escape. She turns to her bat mitzvah self, her closeted lesbian lover and her father Marvin to comfort her. Will this meeting never end?

Karen Ripley
“OH NO! There's men on the land”
Late 70s, early 80s. It was the first lesbian restaurant collective on the planet...maybe. Anita Bryant hated us and we fought back! So when a homophobic trucker called us pussies, Winnie the whore, threw his breakfast to the ground. All you could hear were our pounding hearts. Truckers vs Dykes.
