Written & Performed by 

Abby Stokes

Developed with & Directed by

Gretchen Cryer


Abby’s birth is the result of her parents swinging through the 1960s with wild key parties, martinis, and manhattans. Their frolics leave Abby with one burning question: Who is her biological father? Too many possibilities for Mom to be certain. Dad deflects the subject with biting humor. Today can state-of-the-art DNA paternity testing finally provide her with the answers?
