THE CAKE - Stray Cat Theatre - November 9–24, 2018



By Bekah Brunstetter

at Tempe Center for the Arts
Directed by Katie McFadzen

Sometimes a cake isn’t just a cake.

Jen lives in New York but has always dreamed of getting married in her small North Carolina hometown, so she heads down south with her partner to ask Della, her late mother's best friend, to do the honors of making the wedding cake at her bakery. Della's cakes are legendary ­ even earning her a spot as a contestant on the "Great American Baking Show." She is overjoyed at Jen's request ­ until she realizes there's not just one bride, but two, forcing her to re-examine some of her deeply-held beliefs, as well as her own marriage. Food, faith, and family loyalty take center stage in a paradigm-shifting comedy sure to leave you hungry for more. "I laughed, I cried, I learned, I loved.…Bekah Brunstetter has written that rarity among LGBT-themed plays, one that might actually inspire baby steps towards mutual understanding.” – StageScene LA
