AT THE WEDDING

MARCH 13, 2024 - April 28, 2024

BY BRYNA TURNER
LOCATION MILTON THEATRE
DIRECTED BY TOM STORY

Carlo crashes her ex’s wedding with three simple goals: Don’t get drunk. Don’t make any kids cry. Don’t try to win back the bride, no matter how boring the groom is. (She’ll ultimately fail at all three.) A very, very funny play about loneliness, estrangement, and a slow-burn romance with being alive.
