Five Women Wearing the Same Dress

By Alan Ball. Directed by Bailey Oliveira.

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. 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. With witty dialogue, uproarious situations, and a touch of heart, the play offers a window into the complexities of womanhood, friendship, and societal expectations.
