FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS

by Alan Ball

Directed by Allison Crews

(March 10 - April 3)

 

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride’s younger sister, whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. 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.

 

“An irreverent and funny look at the intricacies of friendship and the power of similar dressing …[a] wonderfully entertaining play…” — NY Post

 

“Five Women Wearing the Same Dress is a fresh-as-a-daisy comedy, funny as can be…” — NY Daily News

 

“Ball has the comic writer’s requisite talent for dialogue that ricochets snappily around the stage.” — TheaterWeek.

 

“Fast and witty… smart and enjoyable… thoroughly engaging… ...Five Women illustrates the evolving ideologies of a female culture still finding comfort in empowerment." — Broadway World
