something borrowed, something blue

Thinking Person’s Theatre presents

(as part of the 4th annual undergroundzero festival)

Blue Dress Reduction
Bridesmaids. Sleazy groomsmen. A chronicle into adulthood.

Blue Dress Reduction, a workshop performance, follows a wedding weekend full of foibles, folly, and faux pas—ultimately exploring the nature of modern-day friendship and what it means to say goodbye. Three childhood friends, (Bent, Hoo and Stevenson; directed by Meghan Finn) reunite to tell their story as bridesmaids at an English countryside affair. As the trio navigates the tensions between the bride’s ashram-going Jewish family and the groom’s upper crust Brit clan, they must tag along on a quest for “wedding weed,” endure “luxury loos,” and encounter a parade of wedding party characters including great dames and sleazy groomsmen. Can childhood bonds survive the tests of travel—and weddings—on foreign soil? Why do people have to grow up and change? Social calamities, travel mishaps, (dis)invitations, and misunderstood emails are exposed through storytelling, video, song, and dance. Though a satiric romp in tone, at the heart of Blue Dress Reduction is an exploration of the growing pains into adulthood.
