Spitting in the face of the devil, Brad Bader
Hailed by critics as “brilliant”, “masterful” and “unforgettable”, Spitting In The Face Of The Devil is monologist Bob Brader’s gripping true story of discovering of that his abusive and charismatic father is a pedophile. A powerful tale of personal survival and triumph that pertains to today’s focus on sexual predators, Spitting In The Face Of The Devil is a 7-Time Best of Fest Award Winner, including “Best Show” of the London Fringe Festival and “Best Script” and “Best Encore” at NYC’s United Solo Theatre Festival. Brader’s daring, uplifting, often comedic play has garnered acclaim at the New York International, San Francisco, Orlando International, Victoria and Montreal Fringe Festivals and will soon travel to Los Angeles as part of Whitefire Theatre’s Solofest 2018. The show is written and performed by Bob Brader and directed and developed by Suzanne Bachner with lighting design by Cory Pattak. 100% of ticket sales for these shows will go to Safe Horizon.

The Good Adoptee 
The Good Adoptee is the riveting and and outrageous true story of Suzanne Bachner’s search for her birth parents as she confronts the uncooperative and often arrogant bureaucracy that guards New York States’s sealed records. Once opening Pandora’s Box, can she integrate her dual identities and still remain “the Good Adoptee”? The show has won awards for “Best Autobiographical Script” and “Best Actress” when it premiered at NYC’s United Solo Theatre Festival. It was named a Best Play by Indie Theater Now and is included in ITN’s Plays and Playwrights 2017 Anthology. The show has been performed at the London Fringe Festival and all over the U.S. including a 7-week 9-city Connecticut tour to support the vital legislative efforts of Access Connecticut. The Good Adoptee is written and directed by Suzanne Bachner, performed by Anna Bridgeforth and dramaturged by Bob Brader with lighting and sound design by Katie Chai. 100% of the ticket sales for these shows will go to Access Connecticut.
