Sarah Silverman has a new musical comic play which she co-wrote with Adam Schlesinger. “The Bedwetter” will have its off Broadway premiere in the spring of 2022.

The Atlantic Theater Company announced that the play will be produced in its Linda Gross Theater with a premiere date set for May 23, 2022. The Bedwetter was originally supposed to premiere last year, but the Covid crisis caused a delay. The play’s co-writer, Adam Schlesinger, died from complication due to the Coronavirus at the age of 52 in April of 2020.

The Bedwetter features the world premieres of Ngozi Anyanwu, David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori, Clare Barron, Sanaz Toossi, Joshua Harmon, Sarah Silverman and Adam Schlesinger. Silverman’s inclusion in the play counts as a premiere because it is her first play.

The play is based on Sarah Silverman’s best-selling book “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee.” The Bewetter was Sarah Silverman’s first book, a memoir. The publisher called it, “at once shockingly personal, surprisingly poignant, and still pee-in-your-pants funny. “

In this collection of humorous essays, Sarah Silverman told tales of growing up Jewish in New Hampshire, losing her virginity, learning to curse at 3 years old, and being a bedwetter until she was old enough to drive, and in a surprisingly poignant piece, she recounts the accidental death of her infant brother. ”Of course, in her loopy, taboo-breaking way, she always manages somehow to leave you laughing. But then you’d expect nothing less from a woman who sang to her boyfriend on national television that she was “F***ing Matt Damon.”

“If you like Sarah’s television show The Sarah Silverman Program, or memoirs such as Chelsea Handler’s Are You There Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea and Artie Lange’s Too Fat to Fish, you’ll love The Bedwetter.”

Sarah Silverman said of The Bedwetter, “I’m not writing this book to share wisdom or to inspire people. I’m writing this book because I’m a famous comedian, which is how it works now. If you’re famous you get to write a book, and not the other way around, so the next Dave Eggers better get a TV show or kill someone or something.”

The New York Times said of the book, “More than just a collection of gags and stand-up leftovers, “The Bedwetter” is a mostly cohesive narrative of how a rebellious comic perspective evolved and became inseparable from the person who employs it, and how anyone who could find offense in that is really the butt of the joke.”

Now let’s see if the play lives up to the book.
