I Ought to Be in Pictures
by Neil Simon

Herb, a Hollywood scriptwriter currently "at liberty" is surprised when his forgotten past reappears in the form of Libby, a teenage daughter who's trekked from Brooklyn with dreams of movie stardom. With Steffy, his sometime paramour at his side, Herb decides to take another stab at fatherhood and hopefully this time, get it right.

"Terrific...sweet, dandy and touching...a mature, memorable play that brings joy to the season." - New York Post

"A finely tuned theatrical blend of hilarity, honesty, directly and deeply felt emotion. Go." - WCBS-TV
