The Twin City Players (TCP) announces the award-winning comedy Wedding Secrets by Joe Starzyk. Wedding Secrets is the winner of the 2012 Mclaren Comedy Playwriting Award, 2014 Perry Award, and 4 STAR awards!
Wedding Secrets is a classic farce dealing with change, mistaken beliefs and identities, and personal secrets. A young couple meet, have a whirlwind courtship, and marry. However, their families have never met the respective spouses, so the couple allows them to believe they are only engaged. Once the families gather, everyone’s secrets come to life. And what is it with the mysterious Uncle Joey who lives in the basement. In all there are Oedipal issues, hookers, an Irish revolutionary, priests, a lounge singer, the Phantom of the Opera, heartbreak, romance, impotence, happy endings, and lots of ties.
