     PRT Premiere Series featuring [Miss]

    Playwrights' Round Table is proud to present the award-winning new play [Miss] by WL Newkirk.

    [Miss] explores the true story behind an infamous drug case that rocked the world in the early 1960s. Drawing on court testimony, lawsuit filings and secret corporate documents, some of them only recently uncovered, the play follows FDA researcher Dr. Frances Oldham Kelsey (Nicole Darden Creston) as she reviews a new drug application submitted by doctors from the William S. Merrell Company (Russell Trahan and Jeff Hole) for the world’s first safe sleeping pill. Despite the drug having already been approved in 46 countries, Kelsey senses something is wrong and delays approval. While Merrell focuses its formidable power on destroying Kelsey, an Ohio family, the Yoders (Hayes Schardt and Tim Wiley), tragically discover the real-world effects of the drug.

    [Miss] is a gripping tale about the challenges women face in science and in life, medical malfeasance, pharmaceutical company misdeeds, and the ability of one woman to make a difference.

      If you like based on a true story, real life drama, strong female lead, standing up against corporate greed, this play is definitely for you. All I can say is don't miss this gem of a play.
