The sparkle of glittery pink cocktails lures three brides-to-be into the city for an epic bar crawl. After a stirring encounter with a handsome stranger, the evening takes a surreal turn that threatens the very future they came to celebrate. In the ups and downs of modern love, sometimes what looks like a drunken party foul might actually be a new beginning.

John Michael DiResta’s spot-on production of Adam Bock’s 2008 play is surprisingly intelligent and sad, while maintaining a tongue-in-cheek brilliance – an apt addition to Steppenwolf’s annual Next Up series…The production’s nearly flawless.
