Everyone’s dressed in their best; the bride looks lovely. The two families gather for the wedding reception and as the food is eaten and the drinks fl ow their stories begin to come out. And of course there are the speeches, the telegrams and some special entertainments laid on by the friends of the happy couple.
What could possibly go wrong?
The Wedding is not an opera as we think of it, but a modern musical about a Scouse wedding, where all the audience are invited as guests. The two families are colliding, and some have secret bombshells waiting to drop. There is even a table reserved for arguments – it’s called the Top Table. Fasten your seat belts – it’s a roller coaster journey. And you’re invited to join in the celebration –every ticket includes a free meal and your first drink!
Inspired by real-life stories drawn from the experiences of former workers at Price’s Candle Factory, Bromborough, The Wedding is a brand new show produced by the Aspire Trust in association with the Royal Court Theatre and Wirral CVS and scripted and directed by Parrabbola – who make community plays all over the world. The Wedding is performed by a community cast drawn from all over the Wirral and from further afield.
