I Ought to be in Pictures

A comedy by Neil Simon

Directed by Vincenzo Guerriero
Produced by Clair Bonanno

Herb, a once successful Hollywood scriptwriter, is having a dry run and his confidence is shaken. He does have some consolation in his off and on sleep in relationship with Steffy, a movie makeup woman. Then suddenly he’s confronted with his distant and almost forgotten past in the person of his teenage daughter, Libby, who’s trekked to Hollywood from Brooklyn where Herb had simply up and left wife, daughter and son sixteen years earlier. Libby’s extremely confident and articulate and she tells Herb she wants him to get her into “pictures”. But actually she’s going to try to salvage him and also find a bit of lost love along the way.
