Directed by Alissa Jessup

But I’m Special! is a multi-character comedic solo performance about adoption, identity and letting your freak flag fly. Based on Alissa Jessup’s life: being adopted in the ‘70s, meeting her birth mother at 33 and learning that the world-at-large doesn’t realize just how special she is, But I’m Special! explores what happens when Alissa is forced to deal with the reality that her nature is in complete opposition from her nurture.
