About Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten’s Always A Bridesmaid: 

This hilarious comedy centers around four friends who have made a promise to each other at their Senior prom: to be in each other’s weddings, no matter what stands in their way. More than thirty years later, these mostly Southern friends are making that promise come true at the historic Laurel Oaks sitting room in Laurelton, Virginia.


Please note: Any part may be played by an actor of any race or ethnicity.

KARI AMES-BISSETTE: 20s-early 30s, a kind-hearted, spirited Southern charmer, who speaks mostly in monologue

LIBBY RUTH AMES: 40s-50s, hopeless romantic, sweet country woman, plainspoken and guileless (please note: Libby Ruth MUST have a southern accent as she is the southern belle of the group)

SEDALIA ELLICOTT: 60s, a gregarious, energetic Virginia hostess and life-force

MONETTE GENTRY: 40s-50s, kinda flashy, kinda trashy, Southern-to-the-bone flirt (please note: Monette must also have a Southern accent though not as distinct as Libby’s.)

CHARLIE COLLINS: 40s-50s, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, acerbic Southern free spirit (please note: Charlie must have a slight southern accent).

DEEDRA WINGATE: 40s to 50s, headstrong with a dry wit, no-nonsense Northern transplant
