PlayMakers is proud to present the regional premiere of “The Cake” by Bekah Brunstetter, directed by Jeffrey Meanza. “The Cake” is on stage from Sept 13 to Oct 1. We are excited to welcome back these two UNC alums as they take us on a charm-filled, compassionate exploration of what happens when food, faith, and family loyalty collide. Della is legendary for baking mouthwatering cakes—she’s even won a spot on the Great American Baking Show! So she’s overjoyed when Jen, the young woman she helped raise, returns home to Winston-Salem and asks Della to bake her wedding cake. But our star baker is forced to reexamine some of her deeply held beliefs when she finds that Jen’s partner is another woman.
