“Somebody’s Daughter” at Hopewell Theater
On Friday, October 21 at 8 p.m., Hopewell Theater presents Somebody’s Daughter, a one-woman show based on Zara Phillip’s book of the same title. The performance features live music accompaniment by folk-rock legend Richard Thompson.
The play tells the story of Zara Phillips, adopted as a baby in the 1960s, becoming a backing vocalist to well-known bands in the 1980s, and getting sober at 22. The play is performed with no-holds-barred honesty about having an unconventional upbringing, adoption, life on the road with musical artists, and learning to navigate her own experience as a mother and sober woman.
Today, Phillips is a singer-songwriter, author, and adoptee advocate. She has written and produced a documentary called Roots Unknown (2009), which won Best Homegrown at the New Jersey Film Festival and penned Mother Me (2008) and her latest Somebody’s Daughter (2018).
Phillips has shared the stage with Bob Geldof, Matt Bianco, and David Essex, among others.
Advance ticket prices are $25-$30 (plus tax) or $35 on the day of the show (plus taxes and fees). Purchase them online: https://tickets.hopewelltheater.com/eventperformances.asp?evt=620.
