The Cake

Written by Bekah Brunstetter
Echo Theatre Company
World Premiere, 2017

Della makes cakes, not judgment calls — those she leaves to her husband, Tim. But when the girl she helped raise comes back home to North Carolina to get married, and the fiancé is actually another fiancée, Della’s life gets turned upside down. She can’t really make a cake for such a wedding, can she? For the first time in her life, Della has to think for herself. A world premiere play from Bekah Brunstetter, NBC’s This Is Us.
