'Five Women Wearing the Same Dress' Plays in NC

Hot Summer Nights at the Kennedy announces Kristen Coury's return to direct the hilarious comedy Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, August 8 - 19 at Raleigh's Kennedy Theatre.

"Written by Academy Award-winner Alan Ball (American Beauty), Five Women Wearing the Same Dress takes place during an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee estate," describes press notes, "It is here that five reluctant, identically dressed bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom.  Each of the women has their own reason to avoid the proceedings downstairs. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny comedy about friendship and love."

The cast includes Emily LaBelle as Frances, Kerry Ann Lambert as Mindy, Athena Reeves as Meredith, Mary Guiteras as Georgeanne and Jennifer Williams as Trisha, opposite Ira Wood as Tripp.

Coury's production team includes Tiffany Owle (stage manager), Curtis Jones (technical director/set & lighting designer), Brian L. Hunt (sound), Catilen Smith (props) and Casey Watkins (costumes).
