An irreverent and funny look at the intricacies of friendship and the power of similar dressing.

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny and touching celebration of the women's spirit.

"FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS is a fresh-as-a-daisy comedy, funny as can be…" - NY Daily News.

"Ball has the comic writer's requisite talent for dialogue that ricochets snappily around the stage." - TheaterWeek.
