What do estranged twins, Moldovan circus performers, a Bernese Mountain Dog and several bottles of expensive champagne have in common? In The Wedding Party, the answer is nothing . . . and everything! Save the date for this wild romp through that most stressful and bizarre of rituals – the joyous, hellish and often alcohol-fuelled post-wedding reception. This comedic tour-de-force features regulars from the Stratford and Shaw festivals.
Careening between a shambolic war of compliments, fraying nerves and a mind-blowing, character-swapping cast of dozens, The Wedding Party will have you entirely complicit in the chaos!
Performance is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes including intermission
