From the author of the critically acclaimed Umbrella comes a "bittersweet comedy." Megan Demarest directs a cast that includes Andrew Glaszek, Kate Grande, Tyler Hollinger, Stephanie Lovell, Synge Maher, Brandon Potter, Tom E. Russell and Carsey Walker, Jr.
According to production notes, "There comes a moment in your life where you need to make a choice about your future, do you embrace it or stay where you are? In this fast-paced, one door farce, Ben faces a decision of a lifetime on the night of Anthony's 30th birthday party again. He must choose between his fiance and the girl who got away while surrounded by his closest friends. Plans are created, mistakes are made, and everything happens after the cake in this bittersweet comedy."
The creative team features Jason Bolen (set design), Carly Hirschberg (costume design), Drew Vanderburg (lighting design), Ien DeNio (sound design) and Montserrat Alejandro Nieves Mendez de Jesus (co-producer/graphic design). The stage manager is Danielle Newell.
