The Bard's Town Theatre, 1801 Bardstown Road

Eve Theatre Company presents Always a Bridesmaid, a rollicking tale by the popular comedic writing team Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten, three of the most produced playwrights in America.

Always A Bridesmaid is a laugh-out-loud journey of four loyal and determined women who definitively answer the question, "Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend?" High school pals Libby Ruth, a hopeful romantic; headstrong judge Deedra; saucy and self-involved Monette; and tree-hugging, marriage-adverse Charlie have sworn to be in each other's weddings, no matter the circumstances (including some of the world's ugliest bridesmaid dresses). Joining these beleaguered bridesmaids on the marriage-go-round are Libby Ruth's newly-married daughter Kari, and Sedalia, the snobby proprietress of the wedding venue at which the antics unfold.
