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, irreverent and touching celebration of the women's spirits.



With A Bang

 by Peter McElligott

A ridiculously absurd, terrifyingly comedic tale penned by NOLA Project member, Peter McElligott. Our young heroine, Margaret, finds out that her father has died…again. When she’s confronted by one very awkward messenger who vehemently denies being an angel, Margaret realizes she must take on her father’s mission – to save the world. This brand-new piece is sure to be an exhilarating ride, as it features members of the much ballyhooed NOLA Project. Plot includes: 1 unsolved murder, 1 serial killer, time travel, an Angel, choice, faith, Bach, 1 invisible zombie brain, and many writers.
