Adoption brings a multitude of diverse people together, transcending race, culture, and traditional gender roles. In this fast-paced collection of humorous and thought-provoking interconnected stories, we meet a young woman raised by two dads, an African-American family considering adopting a Native-American girl, a Korean college student who has to cope with her adopted mom's mental illness, and many others. Skipping freely through the present, past, and future, Conspicuous examines adoption from multiple angles, revealing its complexities and joys. (This play was specially commissioned by Playscripts for high school actors.)
