The Cake opens this weekend at the Asolo Repertory Theatre!
By BEKAH BRUNSTETTER | Directed by LAVINA JADHWANI
Faith, family and frosting collide in this heartfelt new comedy by Bekah Brunstetter, the Emmy Award-winning writer/producer of the hit TV series This is Us. Thirty-something Jen wants her deceased mother’s best friend Della, a talented but struggling baker, to create her wedding cake. She returns from New York with her betrothed to her hometown in North Carolina, and finds that Della is tickled pink to honor her wish – until she discovers that there isn’t just one bride, but two. Moral quandaries, reality TV, and lots of butter collide in this touching new play told with generosity, humor, and more than a few surprises.
