Bachelorette, By Leslye Headland
Vancouver, BC: Bar S Entertainment, in association with Bachelorette Productions, is thrilled to announce the Vancouver premiere of off-Broadway sensation, Bachelorette, written by New York playwright, Leslye Headland. Set in an era of excess and overindulgence, three raucous twenty-somethings convene at a luxurious Manhattan hotel room the night before their best friend makes the lasting vow of marriage.
Ten years out of high school, Regan, Gena and Katie congregate in the extravagant bridal suite of their longtime bff, Becky. Fueled by jealousy and resentment, the girls embark on a night of debauchery that goes from playfully wasted to devastatingly destructive. Their old fears, unfulfilled desires and deep bonds transform a prenuptial bender into a night they'll never forget.
Bachelorette is directed by the formidable and ever present Ana Carrizales, and features dynamic and nuanced performances from Thers Amee, Rebekah Asselstine, Jinjara Mitchell, Chris Walters, Nathan Barrett & Diandra Lee.
Thers Amee first came in contact with Bachelorette at a scene study class mentored by award-winning actor & director, Ben Ratner. She recognized the timely relevance of the material, particularly for western women: The journey of addiction to comply with unrealistic standards of beauty, relationships & love in an age of excess and self-gratification. Ratner saw her relentless passion and gave her an ultimatum – She must do the play.
Two years later, Bachelorette is ready for the Vancouver audience to join the cast in this unforgiving, salacious, and at times reprehensible, dark comedy. One thing's for sure: no one will leave unharmed.
“The talented young playwright displays a gift for incisive characterizations and sharp, comic dialogue.” NY Post.
