Called "hilarious" (Broadway World) and "engaging" (TheaterMania), The Accidental Pervert is a laugh-out-loud play that tells the awkwardly poignant story of a boy's journey into manhood after discovering his dad's video tapes hidden in a bedroom closet. Andrew subsequently develops an addiction that continues until the age of 26, when he meets his wife to be, and finds himself struggling to find the balance between fantasy and reality.

Julia never bought a baby before. Okay, she's adopting, but the agency sure makes her feel like she's buying a baby. Couples competing in the free market of love. Bad ovaries but good credit? Step right up! Did you know some kids are discounted? A black baby—which is what Julia and her wife are seeking—costs 1/2 of a white baby. Almost makes Julia and Amy want to run out and start a chapter of the Black Panthers - and Amy's white! The one saving grace is that the waiting time for adopting a black child is six months instead of the two years it takes for a white baby. Oh wait, a gay couple? Make that a year. What's that? Julia is a recovering alcoholic? And she's insisting on including that info in their Dear Birth Mother letter? Make that anywhere between 2 years and… Hilary Clinton's second term! But only five days after signing the contract at the adoption agency, a bomb drops…
