As a precaution against the spread of COVID-19, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the rescheduling of our March 19-April 5 production of The Cake. We love and respect our Kenmore community and all of our amazing patrons who have supported us through our first year. As If is still committed to bringing you professional-level theatre experiences, but we also have a responsibility to follow Kenmore’s leadership and their recommendations in keeping our population safe. Aside from excellent hand washing, another important element is the minimization of socializing in large groups. Stepping aside from the passion that drives us, we put on our big girl pants and made the hard decision for our community and our company.

We could not be prouder of this show and, while we are disappointed we won’t open next week, we look forward to sharing it with you very soon.

Until we are able to fist bump you in person, know that we are thinking of you and grateful for your continued support.

Wash hands. Stay healthy. Make art.
Cindy, Molly, and Amy

Join us for the Washington Premiere of


A comedy about baking, beliefs, and when to stop following the recipe.

November 4-21, 2021.

All is going well for Della. Her North Carolina bakery is legendary and she’s just been cast on her favorite television baking competition. But then, her late-best-friend’s daughter comes home from New York City to ask her to make a cake for her upcoming wedding. When Della learns that Jen’s about to marry a woman, she is forced to re-examine her deeply held beliefs, as questions of morals, judgment and family swirl around them all. This emotional and deliciously funny play was created by Bekah Brunstetter, writer and producer of NBC’s This is Us. Approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.

“The play’s tight narrative construction is apparent from the opening scene, which immediately seduces us with Della’s bubbly charm.  What’s refreshing and heartening about The Cake is its characters’ willingness to face their differences and limitations head-on.  This is us as we could be, if we’d all just try a little harder.” -Los Angeles Times

“This Is Us‘ writer Bekah Brunstetter’s writing is hilarious.” – Hollywood Reporter

“Talented writer Bekah Brunstetter has found all the right ingredients to create a compassionate comedy…the kind of crowd-pleasing confection that audiences will eat up greedily.” – Theatre Pizzazz
