five womenSaint Louis University Theatre presents “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” by Alan Ball.
This hilarious comedy is directed by Kristin Rion, a senior Theatre Major, and assistant directed by John Clark, a sophomore Theatre Management Major.
The play is set during a wedding reception in Tennessee where there are five bridesmaids hiding upstairs to avoid the party. In a recent interview, Rion said the production is “fast-paced, fun, lively and then it’ll switch on a dime to something more serious.”
Caroline Kwan plays Trisha, a jaded beauty who falls for one of the ushers at the wedding. As a senior, Kwan has been a remarkable talent in the department.
On her final role, she said, “I could not have been happier to be a part of ‘Five Women’ as my last show at SLU. Playing the role of Trisha has been a fun challenge because in some respects I can relate to her character completely, whereas in others she and I are on totally different levels of thinking. My favorite part is being able to have these one-on-one moments with all of the characters. These moments really help define one of Trisha’s best qualities – that she is a great friend to have because she will always listen and she cares deeply about others’ happiness.”
The other four bridesmaids in “Five Dresses” are played by Maddie Spruce, Alicen Moser, Alyssa Still and Sam Moyer. Ryan Lawson-Maeske also stars, adding to the sheer force of comedic style in you’ll find in “Five Dresses” that will leave you wanting more.
Certainly a production you won’t want to miss, “Five Women Wearing the Same Dress” opens in the Studio Theatre of Xavier Hall on Friday, March 28 at 8 p.m. and continues Saturday, March 29 at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 30 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 at the door.
