Five Women Wearing the Same Dress by Alan Ball
Directed by Dorrie Braun
(626-695-8283)
Performances March 9-18, 2023

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee estate in the summer of 1993, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids (and one charming, bad-boy usher) hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with their own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent and touching celebration of women’s spirit.

The cast includes 5 women and I man.

Scripts are available to read at the library front desk. Auditions will be readings from the scripts.
