Goldcorp Stage at the BMO Theatre Centre
Clashing clans at a riotous reception

It’s the big day, but the newlyweds are offstage and the two families are at each other’s throats. The father of the groom saves a seat for the dog, a long-lost twin confuses everyone, and the bride’s mother is cut off from the wine. Grab a ringside seat for all the laughs, debauchery, disagreements, and love as this changing cast of characters keeps you howling right up to the final dance.

Running time: approx. 2 hr 5 min, with one intermission
