The Wedding Story script
Synopsis: The Wedding Story” is a play told by a storyteller, bride, and groom. The storyteller is reading a story out of a book to an audience of children. Wanting to tell them a happy love story keeps being interrupted by the bride and groom. They keep correcting him on how the story really goes until he gets fed up. Angry, he tells a horrified comical version of their love story that does not have a happy ending.

BRIDE:
How old’s that make him?

STORYTELLER:
27. Why, how old is he really?

GROOM:
I’m the one that’s 24.

STORYTELLER:
Isn’t that a little young to be getting married?

BRIDE:
How come 24’s okay for me but not for him?

STORYTELLER:
You’re the woman. You’re supposed to be younger.

BRIDE:
Jesus.

STORYTELLER:
Now, before I was interrupted for the umpteenth time, boys and girls, I was saying that after the reception, the 24-year-old bride was whisked away in a horse-drawn carriage by her 27-year-old Prince Charming.

BRIDE:
Whisked away where?

STORYTELLER:
I don’t know. To... the... airport.

BRIDE:
Which one?

STORYTELLER:
The Airport of... Vermont .

BRIDE:
There’s one in Burlington and one in Montpelier .

GROOM:
How did you know that?

BRIDE:
I majored in geography.

GROOM:
You did?

BRIDE:
(to STORYTELLER) So Mr. Fancy Pants, which one was it?

STORYTELLER:
The one where you caught your flight to Hawaii for your honeymoon.

BRIDE:
This whole fairy tale is completely out of hand. Anyone knows there’s no flights from Vermont to Hawaii . You have to fly through Logan or LAX. Or both. And anyway, I highly doubt they’d let the horses in the terminal.

STORYTELLER:
Oh, for God’s sake, what’s the big deal in telling the children a nice little story?

BRIDE:
No one’s life turns out like that. How many of those kids will live up to your version of the story? None! They can’t, it’s too much pressure. It’s like why Catholic women are all messed up, you can’t be a virgin AND be a mother. And Brad, I probably shouldn’t have married you to begin with.

GROOM:
Shayna, how can you say that?

BRIDE:
You’re probably gay.

GROOM:
What?

BRIDE:
Oh c’mon, how many straight male floral designers do you know?
