Celebrate New Plays!

ARTS/West is conducting a workshop of What Ever Happened to Baby Abby a new play by Merri Biecher. The play was read as part of the 2011 Humble Play Festival-- due to positive audience feedback the play was selected to receive a concentrated week-long workshop. We will have a public reading of the rewrite on Sunday, March 25th at 7pm at ARTS/West. FREE and donations appreciated. It will be an opportunity for the audience who heard the play last October to see what we’ve done with it.

The ensemble cast features community, professional, and Ohio University Actors.


Merri Biechler says "The comedy is about a young woman who discovers at the age of 27 that she was a famously-rescued baby. I remember vividly Baby Jessica being pulled from the well back in the 1987. I wondered what it would be like for a young woman to not know SHE was that famous baby and feel like her life hadn’t lived up to the hype of her rescue as a two-year old."
