The Cake

The Cake 
runs at Barrington Stage’s St Germain Theatre through July 15. This comedy provides a look at complicated relationships made more so by political positions. Debra Jo Rupp’s baker, Della, aspires to be on “The Great American Baking Show.”  When the daughter of an old friend asks her to bake a cake for her wedding, Della is delighted until she discovers that the female journalist she has been instructing about baking is the daughter’s intended..  Della is a devout Southerner who plays by the rules  she has known all her life. The play shows us what happens next.
