He's had a crush on his best friend's sister since she was seven, and now she's about to tie the knot.  What does he have to lose, but the love of his life?  This hysterical comedy is at once entertaining, very funny, and ultimately, touching.

Directed by Steve Berglund
Friday, June 26, 2015, 7:30 p.m.
Moore Hall Bush Theatre

 It's Courtney's wedding day, and her mom is on task making sure all is perfect.  The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect, and the decorations (should they arrive) will be perfect.  Then, the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose!  An unexpectedly touching comedy from Lewis Black.
