Have you ever had to give up something you LOVE?

Smoker is multi-award-winning monologist Bob Brader's acclaimed solo comedy about his 28-year love affair with smoking and how they broke up. As Bob tries to leave his first love: “those sweet Camel lights” he realizes all the complex connections he has through smoking: how it helped him through a turbulent childhood, created jobs, opportunities and community, and one particular connection almost too precious to let go. At once hilarious and cautionary, Smoker expertly illuminates addiction with universal resonance.


Critics' Choice


"Smoker is Smooth and Satisfying!”

– All About Solo


"Eloquent and entertaining…a solid addition to the literary genre exploring the mystique and fetishization of smoking.”

– Theater Scene


"Bob Brader is a dynamic storyteller with a wonderful, strong voice and a talent for creating visuals and characters…We’re hooked!”

– Winnipeg Free Press


"Smoker is is Addictive Theatre: It’s 80 minutes that feels like 30 a feat few actors have the talent to pull off… compelling theatre fueled by Brader’s masterful storytelling and acting talent, a show that must not be missed!”

– London Free Press





Can you imagine not knowing your own identity?

The Good Adoptee is the riveting and outrageous true story of award-winning playwright Suzanne Bachner’s search for the truth of her origins and first/birth parents in the face of New York State's sealed records. Once she opens Pandora’s Box, can she find a way to integrate her dual identities and still remain “the Good Adoptee”?


The Good Adoptee has won awards for Best Autobiographical Script and Best Actress for original star Anna Bridgforth when it premiered in the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City. The show has toured to the London International Fringe Festival and all over the U.S., including a 7-week 9-city Connecticut tour to support the vital and now successful legislative efforts of Access Connecticut, to the 400-seat SJCC in Seattle and to global audiences in its virtual presentations including the 'r kids Fundraiser at The Shubert. The Good Adoptee recently made our triumphant return to live performance on stage at the CUB Retreat in Tampa, FL followed by a show and All-Star Panel event at The Kraine Theater in NYC.


"A story is rarely so personal and it has a very healthy

amount of laugh-out-loud-humour!”

– Sadie takes the Stage, London UK


"Nardizzi has an easy manner about her. She delivers jokes and emotion with the same amount of mastery...Bachner’s script took us to the point where we started to feel like we were right next to her heart.”

– The Young-Howze Theatre Journal


"Superior writing…A spellbinding emotional detective story about an NYC

woman searching for her birth parents!”

– Theater Scene


"A powerful show that the entire world needs to see!”

– Suz Bednarz, writingmywrongs


"The Good Adoptee is everything you want a solo show to be: well-crafted, lovingly performed and thoroughly entertaining!”

– Hi Drama





What if you discovered that love wasn’t enough?

Set in present-day Los Angeles and New York City, Conversations with My Divorce Attorney is a fast-paced 90-minute 2-hander about a fiery NYC Millennial and her savvy, seasoned LA Divorce Attorney who strike up an unlikely connection as they each navigate love, loss, holding on and letting go. It’s a comedy till it’s a drama.


Our unique virtual reading of Suzanne Bachner’s Conversations with My Divorce Attorney, which premiered on Broadway on Demand, combines a dynamic, intimate and connected Zoom performance with stunning, layered and theatrical video design. Starring Kat Nardizzi and Bob Brader with narration by Ellen Ritter and video design by Chris Kateff. Original Song ‘Maybe’ written by Dan Siegler and performed by Deanna Kirk.
