The Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center [Dayton]

Directed by Heather N. Powell

Starring Jennifer Joplin as Erma Bombeck

Dayton’s own Erma Bombeck takes center stage in this touching one-woman comedy. Human Race Resident Artist Jennifer Joplin stars as the literary icon whose candid commentary on life as a woman, spouse and mother made her the champion of suburban housewives everywhere and her newspaper columns a mainstay on kitchen refrigerators for over thirty years. Full of personal anecdotes and sprinkled with plenty of Bombeck’s famous one-liners, it’s a charming biography that proves “if you can’t make it better, you can laugh at it.”
