In this hilarious comedic romp, four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other's weddings.no matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making "the long walk" for each other, determined to honor that vow. Careers, waistlines and even marriages may disappear, but real friendships last a lifetime. Forsaking all others, in sickness and in health, they repeatedly struggle to stage the perfect wedding in spite of fistfights at the altar, runaway brides and the mistaken, and unfortunate, release of a flock of white doves on the first day of hunting season. ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID is the rollicking tale of four loyal and determined women who

definitively answer the question, "Just how far are you willing to go to keep a promise to a friend?" If you've ever elbowed a stranger out of the way to catch a bride's bouquet, seriously questioned the mental stability of

the duo saying "I do" or been forced to wear the world's ugliest bridesmaid dress, this deliriously funny JONES HOPE WOOTEN COMEDY is definitely for you.and your dearly beloved!


CHARACTERS: 6 WOMEN

KARI AMES-BISSETTE, a kind-hearted, spirited Southern charmer.

LIBBY RUTH AMES, hopeless romantic, sweet country woman, plain-spoken and guiless.

SEDALIA ELLICOTT, a gregarious, energetic Virginia hostess and life-force.

MONETTE GENTRY, kinda flashy, kinda trashy, Southern-to-the-bone flirt.

CHARLIE COLLINS, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, acerbic Southern free spirit.

DEEDRA WINGATE, headstrong with a dry wit, no-nonsense Northern transplant.

DIRECTED BY, Thomas Watson
