Running Nov. 16 through Dec. 10, The Ringwald Theatre is “The Cake,” a topical story about two worlds colliding and the choice to accept or reject change. The story begins with Della, a woman who tries not to voice controversial opinions.
“Della makes cakes, not judgment calls — those she leaves to her husband, Tim. But when the girl she helped raise comes back home to North Carolina to get married — and her betrothed is another woman — Della’s life gets turned upside down,” said event organizers. “She can’t really make a cake for such a wedding, can she?”
“The Cake” is a bittersweet culture-clash comedy by Bekah Brunstetter, who has spent the last several years writing for two hugely popular TV shows: “American Gods,” the Starz series based on the acclaimed fantasy novel by Neil Gaiman; and “This Is Us,” the award-winning NBC dramedy on which she’s also a producer.
The production is directed by Dyan Bailey, stage managed by Andy Lograsso-Gaitens and features Suzan M Jacokes as Della, Joel Mitchell as Tim and introducing Maggie Alger and Audrey Jai as Jen and Macy. The design team features Chris Fortin (costumes), Christopher Kamm (set), Brandy Joe Plambeck (lights), Katy Schoetzow (props) and Dyan Bailey (sound).
