The Cake


Faith, family and frosting collide in this touching and timely new comic drama starring Debra Jo Rupp (winner of LA Stage Alliance Ovation and Drama Critics Circle Awards for her performance) and written by Bekah Brunstetter, writer/producer for NBC’s This Is Us. Della makes cakes, not judgment calls — those she leaves to her husband, Tim. But when her best friend’s daughter comes home to North Carolina to get married, Della’s life gets turned upside down when she realizes there’s not just one bride, but two. She can’t really make a cake for such a wedding, can she? For the first time in her life Della has to think for herself, forcing her to re-examine some her deeply-held beliefs, as well as her own marriage.
