Alana interviews Jane Cafarella, about her 2017 play D-Baby.
DEE, 17, knows there’s something odd about her mother’s story about her absent father, so when she meets fellow Senior ZAC at Medford High School in Boston, Massachusetts, she is intrigued to discover that he is donor conceived and wonders if she is too. Secretly, she begins to search for information and is stunned when she finds what appears to be a donor profile hidden in an ancient family Bible. Why has her mother, JUNE, a passionate Humanist who believes people can be “good without a God”, kept this from her? Desperate to know more, but fearful of upsetting June, Dee persuades Zac to search for their sperm donors together under the guise of a group assignment, unaware that June is secretly seeing a therapist to find the courage to tell her explosive secret. Myth, secrets and lies are interwoven in this tender, funny and sometimes shocking coming-of-age story about a group of people for whom the fundamental human question, "Who Am I?" may be impossible to answer.
