A One-Act Play
written by Carrie Robbins.


You could say Le WEDDING DRESS is just about the purchase of a fancy white dress.
But anyone who thinks about clothes even a bit knows that a dress, especially a wedding dress, is about a lot more than that. Sometimes clothes are about attraction, sometimes about hiding, sometimes
about power, sometimes about grief. Lack of clothing? Well that’s a different play. But sometimes clothes can become the battleground through which families carry on war.
Such is the case in Le WEDDING DRESS.
Often the only person who gets to observe this ‘war dance’ is the person who makes the dress or makes the sale, or both. And to the warring parties, that person is just wallpaper.
The war rages on as if the person isn’t there at all. Fitters & sales folk are used to this. Yet amazingly, they keep trying to find a way to make the client happy.
And though Le WEDDING DRESS may seem almost farce, it’s pretty close to the truth as I have observed it.
