“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.

“A very fine new play ….one of the more subtly surprising treats of this theater season.” The New York Times. “A quality rarely seen on Broadway” – Time Out

Welcome to Southie, the Boston neighborhood where a night on the town means a few rounds of bingo, where this month’s paycheck covers last month’s bills, and where Margie Walsh (Katie Whitney) has just been fired from yet another job.

Facing eviction from her eccentric landlady (Linda Lee Austin) and scrambling to catch a break, Margie, on the advice of her best friend (Emily Rogers), approaches her former boyfriend (Dave Barker), now a wealthy doctor, in hopes that he is her ticket to a fresh new start.

Will this self-made man face his humble beginnings? Margie risks what little she has left to find out. The outstanding cast includes Krystle Dellihue and Chris Krenz.

Good People maps the fault lines of social class with a rare acuity of perception while also packing a substantial emotional wallop.” – Boston Globe “A wonderful new play … poignant, brave and almost subversive in its focus on what it really means to be down on your luck” The New York Post

“Smart and absorbing.” — The New York Times. “One of this year’s most valuable additions to American drama.” — The Los Angeles Times.

Veteran social worker Caroline (Loretta Grimes) believes that she has a typical case on her hands when she meets two young addicts (Krystle Dellihue and Liam Weeks) accused of neglecting their baby.

But when she places their infant daughter in the care of the girl’s mother (Deb Wood), Caroline sparks a powerful conflict that exposes a shadowy past and forces her to make a risky decision with potentially disastrous consequences.

Powerful and arresting, Luna Gale is a heartbreaking and unforgettable tale of love and betrayal.

Redbud’s talented cast includes Matt Clark, Brian Hayes and Celine Lopez.

“An outstanding new social drama about parenting that stands as a rich contribution to the American theater canon” – The Hollywood Reporter.

Redbud Productions kicks off its 17th year with the Michigan premiere of this critically acclaimed comedy-drama. “Highly Recommended …this New York–based writer confirms her unique gift for capturing the quirks of human behavior and the stresses of contemporary life…. combining truth, humor and heart.” – The Chicago Tribune

Librarian Anne Kelly (Mary Franceschi) desperately needs help. There is no romance in her life. She still lives with her aging, ailing mother. Her deadbeat brother (Jon Wax) won’t return her calls or offer much assistance and her ancient family home is falling down around her.

When a younger man (Liam Weeks) with a sweet disposition, a thin resume and a shaky past applies for a job as her mother’s in-home caregiver, Anne finds her quiet life spinning rapidly out of control in ways she had not expected.

Krystle Dellihue is featured as a surprise household guest in this delightful new play written by an Emmy Award-winning writer. Assisted Living is a funny and surprising look at the struggle to discover where our families end, and where we begin. The talented cast also includes Becky Freligh and Neeraja Aravamudan.

“A very compelling new play…and a remarkable proficient mystery that never lets you guess where it is going.” – The Chicago Tribune
