“The play is a comedy set at the Knoxville, Tennessee estate of the bride during the newly married couple’s ostentatious wedding reception. Five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in the upstairs bedroom of Meredith, sister of the bride. They each have their own reasons for avoiding 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 the women’s spirit.”
