All is going well for Della. Her North Carolina bakery is legendary, and she’s just been cast on her favorite television baking competition. Then, her late-best-friend’s daughter Jen comes home from New York City to ask Della to bake her wedding cake! But when Della learns Jen’s fiancée is a woman (who doesn’t eat sweets!), her deeply held beliefs and fears of change are the ingredients threatening everyone’s happily ever after.
Audiences in New York and around the country love this emotional and deliciously funny play created by Bekah Brunstetter (“This is Us”) staged by City Theatre’s Artist Director Margaret M. Ledford.
