This heart-felt comedy set in Knoxville, Tennessee follows the all-too-familiar tale of five acquaintances awkwardly crossing paths for what seems like a brief moment in their lives – their friends’ wedding. With conflicting interests and strong personalities, the five bridesmaids struggle at first to get along, but it isn’t long before the girls find something to unite them in friendship – a common dislike for the bride. Moments of friction resolve themselves giving way to an unbreakable bond between the women. Please be advised that strong language is used throughout this play.
