Silverthorne Theater Company presents the final production of our 2023 season, Bekah Brunstetter’s The Cake. Directed by Gina Kaufmann, performances will take place at the Mainstage Theater at Hampshire College in Amherst, from June 9th – 17th.
Starring Elizabeth Aspenlieder*, Sam Samuels*, Tahmie Der, Claudia Maurino, and Gabriel Levey.
Della, a vivacious, white conservative North Carolina baker, faces a crisis of conscience when Jen – whom she loves like a daughter – asks her to bake a special cake for her wedding – to a Black woman. This romantic comedy is a recipe for unexpected turns and unexpected empathy. Baking a cake takes time, rich ingredients and a lotta love.
Please note: In the best interest of all our patrons and personnel, we are requiring audience members to wear masks while at the performance. Masks will be available at the door. We no longer need proof of vaccination, though we strongly urge you to take this measure of safety. Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times.
