Zara Phillips - Somebody's Daughter

Saturday, December 10, 2022 @ 8:00pm

Outpost In The Burbs
40 S Fullerton Ave, Montclair, NJ 07042

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.

There will be a Q&A with Zara Phillips immediately following the show
