City Island Theater Group: Auditions for Alan Ball's Five Women Wearing the Same Dress

By Alan Ball
Directed by Maria Provenzano

The play is a comedy set at the home of the bride in Knoxville, Tennessee during the newly married couple's overdone southern-style wedding reception. The five bridesmaids have found refuge in the room of Meredith, the sister of the bride. The women come to realize, among other things, that they, despite their differences, have more in common with each other than any of them do with the bride. It's a raucous, raunchy comedic romp about life, love, men, marriage and intimacy as seen through the eyes of five very different, yet similar women.

SEEKING: (5 Women + 1 Male)

Meredith Marlow: (early 20's) The bride's nosy, pot-smoking sister who is very sarcastic and much annoyed with the whole fiasco downstairs. Sporting an outwardly tough attitude, she has a lot of hurt and insecurity to hide.

Georgeanne Darby: (early 30's,) Tracy's "ugly sidekick" in middle school. Accepted the invite to be a bridesmaid even though her relationship with Tracy is strained because Tracy's boyfriend once knocked Georgeanne up.

Trisha: (early 30's) One of Tracy's former friends with a supposed bad reputation. She's been with a lot of guys, but not any that measure up.

Frances: (early 20's) The very naive and religious cousin of the bride.

Mindy McClure: (mid - late 30's) The groom's clumsy, outspoken lesbian sister.

Tripp Davenport: (late 20's) An usher who falls for Trisha. The only male in the show.
