White woman, 50s. A pleasant, well-meaning, full-figured woman who has long dreamed of appearing on The Great American Baking Show. Owns a bakery in North Carolina.
White man, 50s. Della’s husband, a plumber. A good ol’ boy. Also from North Carolina.
White woman, 30s. A type-A bride with a wedding binder, who has dreamt of her wedding day her whole life. From North Carolina, but has since moved to New York City.
African American woman, 30s. Jen’s reluctant fianceé. Highly intelligent, wry, blunt. Lives in Brooklyn.
Story line: For small-town baker Della, the creation of sweet and sumptuous cakes is a rapturous experience. Her love of baking is matched by the intense affection she feels for Jen, the young woman she helped to raise and views as a surrogate daughter. But when Jen asks that Della bake a cake for her wedding to another woman, Della’s religious beliefs stop her cold. With immense heart and humor, Brunstetter’s play navigates the messy collision of the personal and the political, while illuminating the humanity of all involved.
