Too Fat for China: A New One Woman Show

Too Fat for China follows Phoebe Potts, comic storyteller and self-described professional Jew, as she tries, fails, and eventually succeeds to adopt a baby. After a U.S. adoption goes horribly wrong, Potts finds herself surprised, disgusted, and ultimately resigned to the role she plays as a middle class white lady in the business of adopting babies internationally. Potts’ tragicomic journey is about looking for more — love, life, family — and she'll do anything to get it. Learn more at!
