BRILLIANT…POWERFUL AND MEANINGFUL…ABUNDANT WIT AND HUMOR—LA Post-Examiner

From the Writer of TV’s This is Us!

When Della, a North Carolina Baker and devout Christian, is asked to bake a wedding cake for her best friend’s daughter, she is overjoyed. But that joy is short-lived when she learns that the intended is another bride. Struggling to reconcile her deeply-held belief in “traditional marriage” and the love she has for the woman she helped raise, Della finds herself in strange new territory.

Inspired by a story still in the headlines, this marvelously funny new play by Bekah Brunstetter (TV’s This is Us) is proof that love is the key ingredient in creating common ground.

Audience Testimonials

  • “Oh my goodness, that was really a great play! I brought my 19-year-old daughter and she loved it too! I mean we were talking about how great the show was all the way home! What a great script, extremely talented cast and fantastic crew! I felt that we were watching a Tony Award winning play, it was really that good! And I’ve seen quite a few Broadway plays.” – Nicole Roebuck, Executive Director of AID Atlanta Inc.
  • This is a VERY POWERUL piece. Yet again, it’s another indication of the power of the arts. There are so many powerful messages around one’s own identity, the journey of finding our own identity, the impact of societal influences and then, from my perspective, the ‘gay marriage’ message was actually the lesser of the powerful messages that were shared, and in a funny but thought-provoking manner. I can tell you that AHF is VERY proud to be a supporter of this piece.” – AHF/AID Atlanta Sponsor
