“Dramatically satisfying, intensely emotional …’The Cake’ manages to touch our hearts even as it tickles our funny bones – CurtainUp

All is going well for Della (Deb Wood). Her North Carolina bakery is legendary, her husband (Brad Sharp) is proud of her culinary accomplishments, and she’s just been cast on her favorite television baking competition.

But then, her late-best-friend’s daughter Jen (Katie Whitney) comes home from New York City to ask her to make a cake for her upcoming wedding. When Della learns that Jen’s about to marry a woman (Krystle Dellihue), she is forced to re-examine her deeply held beliefs, as questions of morals, judgment and family swirl around them all.

Redbud Productions continues its 20th year with the Michigan premiere of this witty and heartfelt play which examines a family falling apart and pulling together when life doesn’t turn out the way they imagined.

“A warm, but unstinting look at the burdens and rewards of caring for a loved one with special needs.” —Time Out Chicago.

A birthday party…two surprise guests…one unexpected evening.

Anxiety-ridden Carol (Lisa Coveney) is determined to have an intimate family dinner party for her disabled son who is turning twenty-one. Everything is going wrong. Her estranged ex-husband (Brian Hayes) drops in unexpectedly after years of having nothing to do with her or their son’s disability. Her daughter (Katie Whitney) reveals that she has a new boyfriend (Chris Krenz), who Carol has never met, who will also attend. And Carol’s son and caregiver are late…very, very late to the party. Lenore Ferber and Michael Haifleigh play the older generation of this clan confronting the possibilities of reconciliation, the power of the past, and the irresistible pull of family.

“A lively and moving comedy-drama… breathing with real, complicated life…buoyantly entertaining.” – The New York Times
