Oct. 22 - Nov. 14, 2021

Della, a sweet, God-fearing Christian, is also the best baker in North Carolina. Nothing would make Della happier than making a wedding cake for her best friend’s daughter, Jenny. Except that Della’s beloved Jenny is marrying a woman. A deliciously funny, multi-layered play about what divides us and brings us together, & the power of love – and cake.

Tom and Amber are college freshmen at Princeton. They are overwhelmed, overstimulated, sleep-deprived, surrounded by strangers, uncertainty and alcohol. What could possibly go wrong? A smart, profound exploration of the culture of sexual consent. A perfectly complex tale for the MeToo age.

This is a unique opportunity to practice your craft in service of RTW’s unique mission. You’ll be part of a tightly knit, highly collaborative team with the ability to directly impact the company’s success.

This position is intended to be a full time role, however, RTW would be willing to consider a part-time, and/or flexible schedule for the right candidate.
