Titled, Bedwetter, the musical is based on her 2010 memoir The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee. 

“It’s a musical. I’m not in it,” said Silverman who added a short description saying: “it’s the year I’m 10 (years old).”

“He read the book and he came over and he just said, ‘This is a play! This is a musical!’” Silverman said. “‘The first chapter is called Cursed From the Start. Cursed From the Start! That’s a line!’”
