SYNOPSIS: Do family bonds transcend time? Is there a special connection that bridges generations? Rachel and Ruthie answer these questions as they reveal the powerful and touching nature of the relationship between a granddaughter and her grandmother. An unexpected juxtaposition in time is used to convey a story that is heart-warming yet funny and surreal yet grounded. This short musical is comprised of a beautiful duet and reprise and can either stand-alone or be added with other plays/musicals to form a longer program.
When Ruthie wanders into Rachel’s room at her sorority house, it seems at first to be a random meeting. Soon, however, it becomes apparent that Ruthie may have wandered farther than she originally thought. Rachel and Ruthie is the poignant story of two 21-year-olds in their last year of college who discover they have much more in common than they originally thought. Each girl has something to gain from their encounter, and the experience will prove incredibly rewarding for both. This riveting show will bring tears to your eyes and inspire you to reach for your loved ones.
Rachel and Ruthie is a riveting short musical that is easily produced with one set, two major characters, and a very memorable song.

Rachel and Ruthie was written straight from the heart! It is based on the bonds I believe exist between my dear mother Ruthie and my daughter Rachel -- Even though Ruthie died before her precious granddaughter Rachel was born!
