My Name is Ruth
It’s 1950’s Minnesota don’tcha know?
"I cannot recall when I've seen a play more charming than My Name is Ruth."

My Name is Ruth follows the young widow as she moves to the big city and lands a job at Fields Department Store. But can the bashful businessman Boaz save her home and heart from the conniving K.R? Gosh-o-willickers we hope so!
Brimming with charm and wit, My Name is Ruth is the latest re-imagination from 34west playwright Stephen W. Baldwin.
This quirky Minnesota girl will charm the socks off everyone!
Earlier this spring, My Name is Ruth played to full houses at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, where audiences raved about the delightful chemistry and joyful story. Feeling good never felt so edgy!

My Name is Ruth at "Countdown to FringeNYC preview event at Borders Books"
Come be part of a much anticipated FringeNYC preview event at Borders Books Columbus Circle August 6th @ 6 pm with NYTheatre.com's editor Martin Denton — Hear about the process and inspiration behind My Name is Ruth as 34west playwright Stephen W. Baldwin joins a panel discussion about the process of adapting classic literature for the stage.
NYtheatre Blog states: "It’s a wonderful panel! As FringeNYC Producing Artistic Director Elena K. Holy puts it: A bloody 20-somethings Shakespeare, a television twisted pop-culture Shakespeare, a classic we all read in high school, and a biblical story transfered to 1950′s Minnesota. VERY FringeNYC lineup!"
