Save the Date! Latitude 41 invites you to its production of FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS, by Alan Ball, the Academy Award Winning writer of AMERICAN BEAUTY and Creator of TRUE BLOOD and SIX FEET UNDER.

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee, estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist; Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom; Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behavior; Meredith, the bride's younger sister, whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five very different women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny, irreverent, and touching celebration of the women's spirit. Adult language.

An irreverent and funny look at the intricacies of friendship and the power of similar dressing. "…[a] wonderfully entertaining play…" —NY Post. "FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS is a fresh-as-a-daisy comedy, funny as can be…" —NY Daily News. "Ball has the comic writer's requisite talent for dialogue that ricochets snappily around the stage." —TheaterWeek.

The productions dates are June 22, 23, 29 and 30 at 7:30PM and June 24 and July 1 at 2pm at the Morris Theatre Guild Playhouse 516 W. Illinois Avenue Morris, IL 60450. Tickets are $13 in advance online or $15 at the door. info@lat41.org or 331-72-LAT41

Latitude 41 Theater, a not-for-profit corporation, was founded on the belief that Joliet-area audiences are eager for more quality community theater. Latitude 41 believes that community theater should be an artistically-enriching and enjoyable experience for the audience, the players, and the crew.










Theater is a collaborative art--it's more than what happens on the stage under the lights.  You can make friends, pick up valuable skills and experience, display your artistry, and have a great time contributing to live, local theater by staying involved after the the auditions.

Want to Submit A Show?



Latitude 41 was founded by a group of people who firmly believe that Joliet-area audiences are eager for more quality community theater. We believe that theater is at its best when its creators are passionate about the subject, dedicated to craft and artistry, and committed to following through.



To this end, Latitude 41 prefers to receive submissions from a person or group that feels strongly about the script, rather than having a preselected show assigned to a director or production team.



There are no content-specific requirements for submitting a proposal. The only requirement is that it be a show you need to do, and the passion and drive to help make it happen. Get complete submission guidelines by emailing info@lat41.org.
