Event Description

A wedding. Hearts pounding. Temples throbbing. Tears flowing. Mouth dry. Breath coming in great gulps, toes and fingers numb. . . 

The loving couple, taking their first giant step on their journey through life? Or the guests, smiling to hide their envy, jealousy, self-loathing, despair and most important of all, their desire to catch the bouquet?

Includes post-show wine and dessert reception with the cast.

One encore performance only of this world premiere dramedy, crafted and performed through the ShortBurst Theatre® process by Theatre R.A.W. members Smita Bagla, Victoria Bemis, Marty Cohen, Caitlin Crowley, Christie Evans, Lisa Fridman, Linda Kohn, Veronica Thompson, Addie Walsh, Theda Weston and Playhouse Associate Director of Adult Education Berkeley Sanjay. Written by Evelyn Rudie, directed by Playhouse Co-Artistic Director Chris DeCarlo. 

ShortBurst Theatre® is a collaboration in which professional artists, tyro performers and members of the community at large pool their resources, their time, and their concerns, to create theatre that is relevant on a personal, local and global level, and do it all in a very short span of time, hence the name.

Over the past 36 years, ShortBurst Theatre® has created 50+ collaborative productions locally, nationally and with companies from 11 countries, many that have later become main stage and touring productions, fostering cultural exchange and understanding and making a tangible difference across the city and around the world.  “The performances and collaborations are excellent and very educative. Their work is brilliant!” Fusami Sugimine, Director Global Project, International Human Network, Japan.

Masking is no longer required but still encouraged. We have extras - if you need one, just ask.
