Run: Sept 16th – 25th

Setting: all action occurs in a Las Vegas chapel
Time: the play takes place in the present over a span of approximately 18 months

Characters:

Sandy – The wedding chapel owner. Four-times-married-three-times-divorced owner of a wedding
chapel in Las Vegas.

Wedding #1: The Payback
Bev – The angry bride: Recently dumped, Bev is intent on a revenge marriage, but with the benefit of actually loving the man she is using to get even. Mid to late 20’s – naïve and romantic
Stan – The angry groom: Dumped by his wife, he is determined to marry the ex of the guy who got his gal. Still carrying a major torch for his former wife, revenge seems the right thing to do. Mid-late 20’s.
John – The Elvis minister who works next door: He is able to play Elvis at the drop of a sequined hat, but has a sensitive, non-cynical side. 40s-50s.

Wedding #2: The Comeback
Vanessa – The older bride: A fading actress who saw her glory days in a beach-blanket-bingo spy vs spy sitcom. Well-kept glamour. 50’s
Bryce – The older groom: A fading actor who wants to capture his bygone days when surfing against the Soviets was his life. A one-time pretty boy, still a very well-groomed groom to be. 50’s
Lou – The minister: A bit off in some ways, but watches well, and has a faint remnant of when he was once an Elvis to be reckoned with. 70’s

Wedding #3: The Real Thing
Fiona – The bride, tough ex-con: Fiona never got a chance to make life work – bad home life, poor choice in friends, even worse choice in boyfriends, now recently paroled and united with her postman pen pal love. 20’s-30’s
Marvin – The groom, gentle postal worker: As well versed in post codes as his scriptures, Marvin knows to look on the inside and past the tattoos for an eternal companion. 30’s-40’s
Fist – Scary friend of the bride: Obey the fist. 20’s-30’s

Wedding #4: Sandy & Ken: The Epilogue
Ken – Sandy’s ex-husband, drunk: cameo role. (40s-60s)
