Thanks to commercial DNA tests, family secrets are flying out of closets all of the U.S.A.: hidden identities, illicit affairs, secret sperm and egg donations, unrevealed adoptions … What does access to this wellspring of information mean for who we are?

Join Lehigh Valley’s most eclectic comedy talent in this variety show with trivia for anyone who’s ever looked at their family and thought: How did I get here?

This show will contain adult language and/or situations. Seating will be assigned by ArtsQuest staff upon arrival into the showroom.
