Five Women Wearing the Same Dress

A comedy by Alan Ball


Have you ever been a bridesmaid? Have you ever considered what they say to each other on the big day? Are you better off not knowing? If you answered either yes or no to either of these questions, Five Women Wearing the Same Dress is a show you cannot miss. It's a hilarious exposé of an ostentatious Knoxville, Tennessee, wedding reception where five reluctant, identically-clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom and the girl talk gets real. Each has her own compelling reason to avoid the proceedings below, and, as the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond. This is a funny, irreverent and touching celebration of the feminine soul written by esteemed screen writer, Alan Ball (American Beauty, Six Feet Under, True Blood).

“My mother told me there is an art to wearing a gown, that I should just float down that aisle like a swan. I wanted to say, Mama, have you ever seen a swan walk? Anybody can float on a lake.”
