"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!" www.babygirltheplay.com.
Acclaimed Actress Miki Edelman from the World Premiere production says it best Baby GirL is a journey of discovery for sure, but what resonated to me was how she was able to take the best and most positive parts of her life and find what made it work for her. I believe what was so popular about Baby GirL is the sheer joy of each discovery. Baby GirL never gave up on her dream to be part of a family and finally came to realize that biology is not all there is. Playwright/Director Kim Ehly is such a wonderful woman. I’m so happy that Kim is getting this important opportunity to bring her unique voice to the world."
