Iowa Stage Theatre Company: The Cake
A young woman returns to her North Carolina hometown to ask her deceased mother’s best friend to bake her wedding cake. But she’s marrying a woman, and the friend, very religious, refuses. And then things, including a baking reality TV show and dormant marriage, get very, very interesting. A charming and moving play from one of the writers of the award-winning hit TV series This is Us.
It’s 21st century skills that they need to have the rest of their lives. It’s not just something that when they leave fourth grade, they are done with it.
