About this show

What would you do if your original birth certificate were sealed by the courts, unobtainable, and your heart's desire was to know where you came from? Playwright and performer Cathy Lind Hayes, adopted at three months old by celebrated entertainer Peter Lind Hayes and his beautiful actress-singer wife Mary Healy, embarks on a decades-long journey to learn the truth about where she came from and why she was given up. Cathy premiered The Beauty, the Banshee & Me at the 2014 United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City, winning the award for best autobiographical show. In this deeply passionate, humorous, and poignant solo play, her search takes many turns as she tries to make sense of how she is the daughter of two very different women.
