When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through March 29 2020
The two things you most want at your wedding are your loved ones and a beautiful cake, but both are looking unlikely for Jen. In her small hometown, Della is known for her baking skills, and Jen considers her like family. So when she asks Della to bake her wedding cake, she doesn't expect to be rebuffed. What's the problem? Jen's betrothed is Macy, and Della can't square a lesbian marriage with her religious beliefs. Bekah Brunstetter's play The Cake is inspired by a similar U.S. Supreme Court case but explores the conflict between personal and political beliefs without demonizing either side. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis presents The Cake Tuesday through Sunday (March 13 to 29) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $46 to $71.
