Our next Home Stage Production, The Family Nobody Wanted, focuses on the joys and challenges of transracial adoption. The real-life Doss family adopted 12 ethnically-mixed children in the 1940s, a time when racial prejudice was rampant. We are thrilled to being bringing this play to the stage during November, which is National Adoption Month. In addition, our first Sunday matinee (November 3) falls on Orphan Awareness Sunday. Many of the kids adopted by the Dosses were languishing in orphanages because they were deemed “unadoptable.”
To further educate our audience on adoptee needs, we will have an information table in the lobby during each performance, where anyone can pick up literature for all the area organizations who facilitate adoption, especially international adoption.
