Mariah MacCarthy - Baby Mama Mariah MacCarthy

Mariah MacCarthy: Theater

MacCarthy is an award-winning playwright whose work contains tenderness and brutality in unequal measure. Her plays tend to be sexy, women-driven, queer and funny. She’s performed everywhere from subway stations to Paris. In New York City, she runs a theatre company that specializes in funny, human, ugly plays. She also writes an advice column called “Help Me, Dylan” and teaches playwriting.

BOOM Performance: Baby Mama

“Baby Mama: One Woman’s Quest to Give Her Child to Gay People,” tracks one birth mother’s true adoption journey, from conception to placement with the gay couple of her dreams—while still living her life, dating, and attending the occasional orgy. From adoption agencies to vaginal discharge, from burlesque to good­byes, this intimate night of storytelling is up close and personal. Winner of The Dr. Robert J. Thierauf Producer’s Pick Award of the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. Bring hankies.
