Review: THE CAKE Proves That Love is Always the Key Ingredient in Life Photo Review: THE CAKE Proves That Love is Always the Key Ingredient in Life
by Shari Barrett - Sep 22, 2018

When Della and her Goddaughter Jen have a truthful heart-to-heart about making the decision whether or not the wedding cake will be baked at Della's Sweets, even though you may need a Kleenex, listen closely to the truthful honesty with which the lines are delivered by these two actresses dedicated to showing audiences that neither side is right nor wrong, just diametrically opposed and correct to each of them. And I am not revealing whether or not Della bakes the cake or even attends the wedding as the truth is revealed during the final moments of the play when THE CAKE proves that love is always the key ingredient in life.

by Stephi Wild - Sep 14, 2018

From hit television writer/producer and acclaimed playwright Bekah Brunstetter (This is Us, Going to a Place where you Already Are), The Cake is a play inspired by a story still in the headlines. When Della, a North Carolina baker and devout Christian, is asked to bake a cake for her best friend's daughter, she is overjoyed. But that joy is short-lived when she learns the intended is another bride and realizes she is faced with an agonizing choice between faith and family. Struggling to reconcile her deeply held belief in "traditional marriage" and the love she has for the woman she helped raise, Della finds herself in strange new territory.

According to the program it is not based on The Clash's rise to fame but on the writers' own experiences of, 'A youth spent playing in bands, living in squats and pursuing dreams…'
