Back Story is the hilarious and moving story of the adventures of Ainsley and Ethan Belcher, a close brother and sister dealing with the disappearance of their father who, when they were small children, went on a fishing trip and never returned. Ainsley is a former musical prodigy devoted to protecting and guiding the entrepreneurial and energetic Ethan to a positive path in life. Back Story is based on a short story by playwright Joan Ackermann. Its unique theatrical feature is that its 19 scenes are written by 18 different playwrights, each of whom chose a specific moment in the short story to expand upon, thus creating the back story of Ethan and Ainsley.
