When four friends promise each other on the night of their senior prom to be in each other's weddings (no matter what), they have no idea they'll still be fulfilling the promise 30 years later. But that's just what happens in Always a Bridesmaid. Written by trio Jessie Jones (Kingdom Come), Nicholas Hope (Teacher's Pet) and Jamie Wooten (The Golden Girls), the play asks the question "just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend?" The story centers around hopeful romantic Libby Ruth, who has a perfect marriage, Deedra, who's just found out her husband has a wandering eye, tree-hugging Charlie, who panics when it's time for her own marriage, and high-spirited and self-involved Monette, who's tested her friends' patience with all-too-frequent trips down the aisle. Always a Bridesmaid is a hilarious and heart-warming comedy that's perfect for anyone who's ever worn a hideous bridesmaid dress, knocked over a friend catching the bouquet or questioned the saneness of saying "I do."

Written by Larry Coen and David Crane
Set in the 1930s, it tells the story of brothers Benny and Phil, who go to the Arizona desert to work as extras in the Biblical epic film Exeunt Omnes, directed by the mysteriously reclusive D.W. DeWitt. All 3400 extras are supervised by Louise Goldman, who divides them into groups by asking them to count off by four. While Phil’s experience as a “Three” includes relatively pleasant scenes of feasts and parades, brother Benny is a “Four,” meaning he is included in all ten plagues. As things progress and everything begins to fall apart, Phil finds himself behind the cameras as the film’s director, with Benny in a starring role. The two fall in love with Louise, leading to a brother vs. brother rivalry typical of epic movies.
