About this show

Written and directed by Suzanne Bachner, We Call Her Benny is a dynamic 10-actor ensemble piece that tells the story of an adopted woman's victory through manic-depression, sexual dysfunction, a broken marriage and the reluctant search for her birth parents. This brand new piece was created expressly for the first-ever FRIGID New York festival. The production stars Bob Brader, Anna Bridgforth, Anna Cody, Bob Celli, Thaddeus Daniels, Sean Dill, Francis P. O'Flynn, Candice Owens, Morgan Lindsey Tachco, and Danny Wiseman. "A writer with such a winning combination of humor and empathy... Bachner hits her social targets with repeated accuracy" -- BackStage "Ingenious... it is no accident that so many of the sharp jokes come as a complete surprise." -- The New York Times
