WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
What if you were conceived twice in one lifetime: once by the illegitimate passionate sex of a young couple in love, and next by a "missionary position" lovemaking, conservative couple who long to have a child but the "little guys" never make it to the egg? What if you were adopted by the married couple, only to find out you are everything they can't stand...I mean, understand?
After coming out as a lesbian and being alienated by her adoptive family, Ashley, a spirited young daydreamer, goes on an extraordinary journey to find love and a place to call home. In Kim Ehly's "Baby GirL," when Ashley's fantasies meet reality, expect the unexpected!

"Baby GirL is blessed with offbeat humor, sly insight, and a beating heart." – Rod Stafford Hagwood, Sun Sentinel
"Baby GirL is a joyous celebration of one woman's journey toward happiness. Baby GirL is sweet, funny, touching, unsettling, tender. It's an artistic offspring that would make any playwright proud. Ehly makes a persuasive case for looking beyond blood bonds to find family in those who love us. And in Baby GirL, she makes an impressive playwriting debut." – Christine Dolen, Miami Herald
"Ehly's play is so successful in reaching in and grabbing so many emotions that in the span of under two hours you've empathized, sympathized, shed a tear or two, laughed more than a little, and discovered that somehow you, too, have become part of the family she's created." – Michelle Solomon, Miami Miami Artzine
