About the show:

Monica, a local TV talk show host, is getting married to a man who has neglected to tell her that he is being indicted for insider trading. Monica also has kept information from him. She’s pregnant.  Her sister Isabelle, who wants to be an investigative reporter, uncovers the secrets and, with sister Annie, tries to convince Monica not to go through with the marriage. Meanwhile, the sisters try to convince Annie that she should marry Harry Hobson, her old flame and caterer for Monica’s wedding. The Bowlin women's difficulties with men, which result from a childhood with an alcoholic father and an abused mother, are revealed in this delightful, warm-hearted play. 

Maids of Honor is the culmination of two years of intensive work on acting, improvisation, voice, movement, and stagecraft.
