5 Women Wearing the Same Dress opens July 16

The Belwood Summer the­atre is back for it’s third season of entertainment at the local hall.

The first show of the three play summer season is called 5 Women Wearing the Same Dress, which opened July 16.

The show has been one of the most talked about this season, with the title alone having sparked a lot of din­nertime conversations over the winter. Just when and where would five otherwise rational, intelligent women be caught dead wearing the same dress?

But the play is much more than the quirky gag that ans­wers that riddle – it’s some­thing more.

The show is directed by Stacey Ingham, who was last seen working with First Kisses at the Ennotville Library.

5 Women Wearing the Same Dress is a cute and funny comedy that takes us into the world of five very different women at the reception of a wedding,” she said.  “Through­out the course of the reception, those women discover self-truths that bring them closer together and they find they all have one thing in common – they are all women, striving to be one thing, themselves.

“This show is for women who understand, and men who want to.”

The show contains some coarse language and mature humour that may not be suitable for younger audiences.

The show runs to July 18, with performances 8pm nightly and a 2pm Saturday matinee. Tickets are $15 each, and are available by calling 519-780-7593 or online at www.grin­derproductions.org.
