Love and marriage laughs with Always a Bridesmaid

Audiences can look forward to an hilarious comedic romp at this week’s presentation by Portrush Summer Theatre.

For the members of Ballymoney Literary & Debating Society will be staging Always A Bridesmaid by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten at Portrush Town Hall from July 20-23.

In the show four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom to be in each other’s weddings—no matter what.

More than thirty years later, these southern friends for life are still making “ the long walk” for each other, determined to honour that vow.

Hop on this marriage-go-round for a laugh-out-loud journey with these beleaguered bridesmaids as they navigate the choppy waters of love and matrimony. Libby Ruth, Deedra, Monette and Charlie are committed to the notion that careers, waistlines and even marriages may disappear, but real friendships last a lifetime.

If you’ve ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride’s bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of the duo saying “I do” or been forced to wear the world’s ugliest bridesmaid dress, this deliriously funny comedy is definitely for you ... and your dearly beloved!
