La Jolla Playhouse presents "The Cake," a play by Bekah Brunstetter about tradition, faith and family.

Directed by Casey Stangl, the play tells the story of New Yorker Jen who has always dreamed of getting married in her small North Carolina hometown.

She heads South with her partner to ask Della, her late mother's best friend, to do the honors of making the wedding cake at her bakery. Della's cakes are legendary - even earning her a spot as a contestant on the "Great American Baking Show."

Della is overjoyed at Jen's request ... until she realizes there's not just one bride, but two, forcing her to re-examine some of her deeply-held beliefs, as well as her own marriage. Faith, family and frosting collide in this touching and timely new play.

The show runs Feb. 6 through March 4, 2018. For additional details call (858) 550-1010.
