‘I Ought to Be in Pictures’ at ACT ONE

West End Studio Theatre
959 Islington St.
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States

Artists’ Collaborative Theatre’s FESTIVAL 2019 celebrates the unmatched legacy of beloved American playwright Neil Simon with I Ought To Be In Pictures Aug 16-Sep 1 at the West End Studio Theatre in Portsmouth, NH.

Meet screenwriter Herb Tucker. Herb has writer’s block and a guilty conscience for leaving his family sixteen years ago. But Fate comes knocking when his 19-year old daughter shows up at his door with plans to become a star. Libby Tucker is someone you’ll never forget – a spitfire of a girl full of hope who offers her father a second chance at life and love…if he’s brave enough to take it.

Danielle Howard directs an all-star cast, with Michael Walsh as Herb, Hannah Wagner as Libby, and Donna Phofolos as Herb’s wise and patient girlfriend, Steffy!

Performances: Aug 16, 24, 31, Sep 1 at 2:00 and Aug 17, 23, 24, 30, 31 at 7:30. Tickets $20/$18 sr & st; with Festival Pass just $16/$14. Online at actonenh.org or call 603.300.2986 to reserve and pay at the door.
