About the show

When two mommies want to have a child, things can feel a little unfair. One mommy will pass on her eyes, her hairline, and a whole genealogy of traits. The other mommy? She’ll be connected only by happenstance.

The Genealogy of Happenstance is the latest original solo performance from Allegra J Lingo–co-founder of Rockstar Storytellers and creator of past Fringe hits Crescendo and I Hate Kenny G–about motherhood, family, faith, and the long, complicated road to conception.
