I Ought To Be In Pictures - Emergent Theatre
Herb Tucker is a struggling Hollywood screenwriter suffering from writer's block. To make matters worse, his forgotten past has just shown up at his doorstep in the form of Libby, his teenage daughter, whom he abandoned, along with her mother and brother, 16 years earlier.
Libby is a wisecracking, resourceful, 19-year-old who has come to Hollywood to be an actor. Convinced he can help jump-start her career, Libby expects Herb to help because he "owes her."
Dispensing guilt and demanding love, Libby not only forces Herb to deal with the responsibilities of parenthood, but to come to terms with his on-again/off-again relationship with his adoring girlfriend, Steffy, as well.
Broadway World writes: "If you want to be moved to tears without the sentimentality, go see I Ought To Be in Pictures an assured theatrical treat."
The New York Post called it "terrific...sweet and touching...a mature, memorable play"
