Premiering at Hollywood Fringe, this is the true story of how a girl from the Rural South used the investigative techniques she learned on TV to track down her biological father across multiple states over 25 years.

Reveal the secrets of a nice family in a small town in the 1990s. From a young age, Paulina is let in on a little family secret. Her real father wasn't the man who raised her. This answered a lot of questions, but opened up a lot more.

Writer (Reductress, The Washington Post) and comedian (The Comedy Store, Caroline's on Broadway) Paulina Combow invites audiences on a suspenseful journey of self-discovery in "Adopted by Appalachians." In a time before AncestryDNA, she sets out to crack the cold case she was born to solve.

Echoes of detective novels and true crime thrillers permeate this one-person show, as Paulina employs her sharp investigative skills, learned from a parent in law enforcement and an obsession with legendary detectives like Poirot, J.B. Fletcher, and most of all FBI Agent Fox Mulder. Paulina begins her investigation with only a name and an unshakeable belief that "The Truth is Out There".
