Based on characters created by Joan Ackermann. "Back Story" is a 2-character play written in 19 scenes by 18 playwrights. This play premiered at the 2000 Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville. Set in the Berkshires, "Back Story" illuminates various episodes in the young lives of Ainsley and Ethan Belcher. When Ethan is born during the worst blizzard of the century, his 2-year-old sister Ainsley nearly sacrifices a toe trying to clear a path for the baby's arrival. That initial gesture of devotion blossoms into a tale of sibling loyalty, rivalry and love that spans two decades. Inspired by Joan Ackermann's narrative "Back Story," each of the playwrights in this collective creation puts a distinctive spin on Ainsley's and Ethan's amusing and poignant struggles with life, with each other and with the phantom dad who abandoned them for the wilds of Alaska.
