Ten years out of high school, Regan, Gena and Katie convene in the luxurious bridal suite of their old friend, Becky, the night before her wedding in New York City. Their old fears, unfulfilled desires and deep bonds with each other transform a prenuptial bender into a night they’ll never forget. A comedy about female friendship and growing up in an age of excess. The New York Post wrote of Headland, "The talented young playwright displays a gift for incisive characterizations and sharp, comic dialogue."
