New York premiere by Bekah Brunstetter
Directed by Lynne Meadow
With Marinda Anderson, Genevieve Angelson, Dan Daily, Debra Jo Rupp
All is going well for Della. Her North Carolina bakery is legendary and she’s just been cast on her favorite television baking competition. But then, her late-best-friend’s daughter comes home from New York City to ask her to make a cake for her upcoming wedding. When Della learns that Jen’s about to marry a woman, she is forced to re-examine her deeply held beliefs, as questions of morals, judgment, and family swirl around them all. This emotional and deliciously funny play was created by Bekah Brunstetter (This is Us), and is staged by MTC Artistic Director Lynne Meadow.
“Played with immense warmth by Debra Jo Rupp. It’s all but impossible not to sympathize with her.”
– The New York Times
“Debra Jo Rupp gives a masterfully engaging performance.”
