A Different Recipe
Jen dreamed of her wedding day her whole life. She finally found The One and returns to her North Carolina hometown to ask Della, the best friend of her deceased mother, to bake her wedding cake. Della refuses because Jen is marrying a woman. Mix in a baking reality show and a dormant marriage and things get very, very interesting.
Love is love: From the earliest days of Stagewest Theatre Co., one of ISTC’s predecessor companies, one of our values has been a commitment to sharing the stories of the LGBTQ+ community. The Cake offers a funny, compassionate look not only at the lesbian relationship of Jen and Macy, but the older, heterosexual marriage of Della and Tim. In a polarized time, Bekah Brunstetter’s play shows us how people who disagree can still find their way to understanding.
The Cake contains adult situations, partial nudity and scenes of implied intimacy.
