What I Thought I Knew
by Alice Eve Cohen
Alice, an infertile Jewish woman in her forties, discovers a hard lump in her abdomen. After months of tests, a doctor finally determines that she is pregnant. Based upon true events and the book hailed by Oprah as “darkly hilarious…an unexpected bundle of joy,” this heartfelt journey through a high-risk pregnancy and the American healthcare system is told with honesty and humor. In this solo production, Kim Kivens (MJTC productions include Natasha and the Coat, Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins, Church & State) will play nearly forty different characters. Directed by Jennie Ward (Collected Stories).
