About The Cake

When Della (Debra Jo Rupp), a North Carolina Baker and devout Christian, is asked to bake a wedding cake for her best friend’s daughter, she is overjoyed. But that joy is short-lived when she learns that the intended is another bride and realizes she is faced with an agonizing choice between faith and family. Struggling to reconcile her deeply-held belief in “traditional marriage” and the love she has for the woman she helped raise, Della finds herself in strange new territory.

Inspired by a story still in the headlines, this marvelously funny new play by Bekah Brunstetter (This is Us, Switched at Birth), directed by Jennifer Chambers, is proof that love is the key ingredient in creating common ground.

A Presentation of Echo Theater Company's World Premiere Production.
