There is history in this room.

In The Kirby Theater Company's production of Five Women Wearing the Same Dress, five bridesmaid huddle together in the bride's childhood bedroom to escape a Southern circus wedding. They commiserate about the bitchy bride and their hideous bridesmaids dresses while sharing stories from their hapless romantic histories.

The play was written by Alan Ball of True Blood fame. His feisty bad girl Southern belle characters are familiar and their snappy dialogue is as hilarious as Sookie and Tera's repartee on True Blood. Minus the blood sucking vampire stuff.
