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

" 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."

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.
