The setting is a large estate in Knoxville, Tennessee. A group of five widely different bridesmaids hide out in the bride’s bedroom, taking refuge from the ostentatious wedding reception below – each for her own very personal reasons. Over the course of the afternoon. These women discover that they share much more than the identical (and hideous) outfits they wear. Academy Award-winning playwright Alan Ball (American Beauty, Six Feet Under) wrote this irreverent, wickedly funny, and ultimately touching comedy celebrating the indomitable female spirit.
