Sara Felder is not your average award-winning solo theater artist,
playwright, monologist and humorist. She’s also a world-class
juggling diva. In this fabulous tale of a traditional Jewish lesbian
wedding, Sara takes us from an awkward first date to the culmination
of the wedding ceremony -- the shattering of the wine glass under
the wedding canopy. In between, we meet the reluctant parents, the
blissful brides, and the ageless spirit of the Jewish tradition.
The questions remain: Will their parents attend the wedding? Will
their marriage be accepted by the Jewish faith? Will the brides
both wear wedding gowns? June Bride has delighted audiences in nearly
30 cities in North America and Europe. The show features 3 ball
juggling, compelling rhythms, sharp knives, colorful scarves, a
rhyming poem, a crystal ball, and, we hope, a strait jacket escape.
While public discourse on civil law and religious ceremonies in
regard to same-sex marriage continue to grab headlines, June Bride
enters this conversation with a provocative and hilarious story
of family, tradition and marriage in modern America.
Running time: 1.5 hours plus intermission.
