FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS

By Alan Ball

Directed by Richard Roberts

 CAST:

  • 1 MAN (to play 30s),
  • 5 WOMEN (Ages 18 and Up to play 20s-30s)

 PRE-AUDITION WORKSHOP:

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. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride’s younger sister, whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. 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.

 

 “…[a] wonderfully entertaining play…” —NY Post.

“FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS is a fresh-as-a-daisy comedy, funny as can be…” —NY Daily News.

“Ball has the comic writer’s requisite talent for dialogue that ricochets snappily around the stage.” —TheaterWeek.

Winnifred the Woebegone is just a simple swamp princess looking to win the heart of Prince Dauntless. But can she pass the impossible test Queen Aggravain has in store for her?

Many moons ago in a far-off place, Queen Aggravain decreed no couples could marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, found a bride. Princesses came from far and wide to win the hand of the prince, but none could pass the impossible tests given to them by the Queen. That is, until the “shy” swamp princess, Winnifred the Woebegone, showed up. Would she be able to pass the Sensitivity Test, marry her prince and help Lady Larkin and Sir Harry to the altar? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the classic tale The Princess and the Pea provides some side-splitting shenanigans. For after all, a princess is a delicate thing.

Musical theatre masterminds Stephen Schwartz (WICKED), Charles Strouse (ANNIE), and Joseph Stein (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF) join forces in RAGS, a musical about the immigrants who make up "The Fabric of America." Fresh off an acclaimed run in London, RAGS is more relevant than ever.

Rebecca Hershkowitz and her young son arrive on the shores of America in 1910 in search of a better life. What they find is a country that might not be the promised land they expected. Nevertheless, opportunities abound, and a community of immigrants comes together as they look towards a new future on the horizon.

An affectionate, irreverent roller-coaster ride from fig leaves to Final Judgment, tackling the great theological questions: Did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn’t the word “phonetic” spelled the way it sounds? Whether you’re Catholic or Atheist, Muslim or Jew, Protestant or Purple People Eater, you will be tickled by this romp through old-time religion.

“In the beginning there was THE COMPLETE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE (abridged). And it was good. And SHAKESPEARE begat THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF AMERICA (abridged). And that was good too. And now AMERICA has begat (begotten?, begetted?...whatever) THE BIBLE: THE COMPLETE WORD OF GOD (abridged), and damned if it isn’t the funniest of the lot…” Bob Mondello, City Paper (Washington)
