ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID
By Jamie Wooten, Jessie Jones, and Nicholas Hope
In this hilarious comedic romp, four friends keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other’s weddings… no matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making “the long walk” for each other, determined to honor that vow. Libby Ruth, the hopeful romantic with the perfect marriage, believes — despite all evidence to the contrary — that her friends can find the same happiness. Headstrong Deedra’s “rock-solid” union hangs by a thread when she discovers her husband of many years has a wandering eye. Monette, flashy, high-spirited and self-involved, continues to test her friends’ patience with all-too-frequent trips down the aisle. And salt-of-the-earth, tree-hugging Charlie discovers the hard was that marital bliss is not at the end of her rainbow — then panics when the opportunity presents itself.
