Cake Ladies
Written by Jonathan Norton || Directed by Kevin Moriarty
September 8 – October 17 || Wyly Theatre
Socially distanced seating available.

This world premiere comedy, from playwright-in-residence Jonathan Norton (penny candy), was written specifically to welcome audiences back to the theater. It features tour de force performances by members of our Diane and Hal Brierley Resident Acting company originating roles created specifically for them..  In Cake Ladies, the Scott County Community Playhouse is the pride of Cedar Oak, Texas, a city recovering from the second largest drug-fueled HIV outbreak ever to hit small town America. With the launch of their first ever “AidsFest!” it seems the town is finally turning a corner for the better.  When the COVID-19 pandemic shuts down the playhouse production of Angels in America, the loss is a devastating blow to a city desperately looking to mend. That’s when best friends LeAnne (Sally Nystuen Vahle) and Tweedy-Bird (Liz Mikel)  – affectionately known as “the cake ladies” – leap into action to make Angels soar again in their home town. However to do so they must confront Cedar Oaks dark past and their own carefully buried secrets. Cake Ladies is a deeply heart-warming exploration of family, friendship and the joys of community theater!
