Five Women Wearing the Same Dress
KUCOM Theatre's production of Five Women Wearing the Same Dress is a Mackay Fringe Festival event that opens July 15.
In this dark comedy by American playwright Alan Ball, directed by Luana Royle, five very different bridesmaids find themselves hiding together in an upstairs bedroom.
They are hoping to escape the wedding reception of a bride that -- they soon realise -- none of them really like
There is Meredith, the rebellious little sister of the bride (played by Kristyn Everett);
Frances, a highly religious but sweet cousin (Sarah Ralph); Mindy (Georgia Rogers),
a blunt, good-hearted lesbian who is the sister of the groom; Georgeanne (Jane
Reddrop), a friend from high school whose marriage is falling apart; and Trisha (Anne
Jensen), a jaded beauty whose pessimism and doubts about men are proved false
when she meets Tripp Davenport (Dennis Rozekrans), an usher at the wedding.
In this cramped bedroom away from the festivities, these five identically dressed
women talk, laugh, argue, cry, console one another, and slowly become friends.
Recommended for mature audiences.
Contains adult themes and strong language.
Season dates: 15, 16, 17, 22, 23 & 24 July 2021 (all performances start at 7.30pm)
Venue: Kucom Theatre, 1 Snow Wright Court, Andergrove
