This newly released screenplay by Nina Shengold is about a wedding that is nothing if not non-traditional. A staged reading of the show directed by Janet Grillo will be presented October 26, at Rosendale Theatre.
The comedy takes the audience into the life of a single woman, who plans on marrying her soulmate after attending her brother’s nontraditional wedding. This mystery soulmate’s name? He doesn’t have one. Why? He doesn’t exist. She plans her own nontraditional wedding, without the groom to top the cake. Enter a potential “Mr. Maybe-Right,” and hilarity ensues.
The reading will feature Mary Gallagher, Mikhail Horowitz, Robert Burke Warren, Hannah Munson, Tim Bruck, Dannah Chaifetz, and others as cast members.
