Outpost in the Burbs presents "Somebody

(MONTCLAIR, NJ) -- Outpost in the Burbs presents Somebody's Daughter by Zara Phillips on Saturday, December 10 at 8:00pm in The Guild Room of First Congregational Church in Montclair. Somebody's Daughter is a one woman show based on Zara Phillips' book of the same title.

Adopted as a baby in the 1960's, becoming a backing vocalist to well known bands in the 80s, and getting sober at 22, Zara takes us on her journey to uncover the truth about her history. The story is told with humour and no-holds-barred honesty about the complexity of having four parents, becoming a mother, and learning to navigate it all.  Music by Richard Thompson/Songs by Zara Phillips. The play is directed by John Pietrosoki.

Somebody's Daughter made its debut in August at the Camden Fringe Festival in London.

Tickets are $20 and available for purchase online. The First Congregational Church is located at 40 South Fullerton Avenue in Montclair, New Jersey.

Zara Phillips is a singer/songwriter /author and adoptee advocate. In the 1980's Zara sang with musicians such as Bob Geldof, Matt Bianco, and David Essex. She currently enjoys touring and singing harmony with Richard Thompson. Her latest album, Meditation & Kitkats (2021), was produced by Thompson.
