In This Heartfelt Play, a Cake Opens the Doors for Reflection and Understanding
Horizon Theatre Company continues its 35th Anniversary Season with a production from the writer of the acclaimed series This Is Us, Bekah Brunstetter! The Cake, a touching new comedy, will be performed live at the Little Five Points stage this Friday, May 31st. Don’t miss it!
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 the fiancé is actually a fiancée, Della’s life gets turned upside down. Struggling to reconcile her deeply-held beliefs and the love she has for the woman she helped raise, Della finds herself in strange new territory. For the first time in her life, she must think for herself. Inspired by a story still in the headlines, this marvelously funny new play by Bekah Brunstetter is proof that love is the key ingredient in creating common ground.
“Brilliant… powerful and meaningful… abundant wit and humor!” — LA Post-Examiner
Bekah Brunstetter’s published plays include Oohrah!, Be a Good Little Widow, Going to a Place Where You Already Are, and The Cake, a play inspired by events leading to the US Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. Her television work includes writing for I Just Want My Pants Back, Underemployed, Switched at Birth, and American Gods, and both writing and producing on This Is Us, for which she was nominated twice for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series.
Watch as Della navigates her dilemma at The Cake presented by Horizon Theatre Company! Admission to the May 31st performance is $35 for general admission. VIP tickets include a reserved seat and drink and retail for $50. Discounted tickets are available for seniors.
