Five Women Wearing the Same Dress

By Alan Ball | Directed by Jenna Sargent

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress by Alan Ball is a two-act comedy revolving around five bridesmaids (all wearing the same dress) of the “ultimate ‘do’ girl.” They hide away from the reception within the sanctuary of Meredith’s bedroom, the bride’s younger sister. Though all very different, these gals discover they have more in common than they think, including a shared disdain for the bride, and a history with the same man… drama and hilarity ensue. The five women explore their relationships with each other, the bride, and what it means to be a woman in society.
