Always a Bridesmaid
Four friends swore on the night of their Senior High School Prom to be in each other’s weddings, no matter what. Meanwhile, thirty plus years later, these BFF’s are still making “the long walk” for each other to honour that vow. This rollicking tale answers the question “Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise?” If you’ve ever questioned the sanity of the duo saying “I do” or been forced to wear the world’s ugliest bridesmaid dress, this hilarious play is definitely for you... and your dearly beloved!

Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, wishes to learn about the occult for a novel he is writing, and he arranges for an eccentric medium, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house. At the séance, she inadvertently summons Charles's first wife, Elvira, who has been dead for seven years. Madame Arcati leaves after the séance, unaware that she has summoned Elvira. Only Charles can see or hear Elvira, and his second wife, Ruth, does not believe that Elvira exists until a floating vase is handed to her out of thin air. The ghostly Elvira makes continued, and increasingly desperate, efforts to disrupt Charles's current marriage. She finally sabotages his car in the hope of killing him so that he will join her in the spirit world, but it is Ruth rather than Charles who drives off and is killed. Now haunted by two ghosts Charles has Madame Arcati exorcise the spirits and Charles abandons the house to the ghosts who madly pull it apart.
Characters: Cast 7 - 5 Female & 2 Male
Ruth, 30 – 45, charming, witty warm & funny, but readily driven to distraction by the haunting
Edith, 18 – 25, a young woman in her first job as a maid. Extremely energetic, awkward and excitable. A fun part with
very few lines, but a wonderful presence.
Charles, 40 – 60, urbane, witty, able to deal with any situation he thinks, but comes undone by having to juggle two wives at the same time, one a ghost and the other very much alive.
Mrs. Bradman, 40 – 60, easily distracted but very sincere, unwittingly funny because of her naivety and sincerety.
Dr. Bradman, 40 – 60, highly skeptical, amusingly caught up in his own importance and has trouble being discreet and kind, although not deliberately cruel, is a very funny character.
Madame Arcati, 50 – 70, wonderfully sincere, kind, energetic and full of surprises.
Elvira, 25 – 40, playful, deceitful, menacing, but full of fun.
