“A comedic clash of classes” – globe and mail
“Riotous farse in the service of sharp social observation”
– national post
The Wedding Party celebrates the wedding of Sherry and Jack Jr., and the joining together of two very unlikely families: The well-to-do Sealey-Skeetes and the hard-working, hard-living Boychuks. Audiences will have a ring-side seat for their big day, as an outrageous reception spins out of control in real time. Family secrets, squabbling in-laws, embarrassing speeches, terrible dance moves and those cousins you wish hadn’t shown up.
In one of the play’s most impressive comic devices, six of Calgary’s finest actors will portray the dozens of wedding guests in attendance, moving from one outrageous character to the next at a dizzying pace.
