"A scrumptious diversion!" - examiner. com
"A femme fatale with the baking prowess of Martha Stewart
and the undercover skills of Mata Hari...
Volatile, yet scrumptious, as twisted and mindblowing as slipping LSD into a Yoohoo" - Examiner.com
"If you don't like to laugh, if you are offended by sharp wit,
or if you have a problem with hilarity in general, don't see this play"
- Chris Cortinas Theatre Blog
"A farce with icing on top" - Sequim Gazette
“Cupcake” is a farce, yes, about dangerous desserts made at the Unibaker factory. But it's also
about how men and women, whether they're on a first date or married to each other,
have trouble truly seeing the people they're with." - Peninsula Daily News
Synopsis: When newly-separated Max decides to put his toes in the dating waters behind
his soon-to-be ex’s back, he finds himself up to his neck in a terrorist plot involving cupcakes.
Really evil cupcakes. Meanwhile his almost-date, Suzie, steps out with Alvin, a man
of so many identities even he’s not sure who he is. This could be the most exciting or
dangerous night of Max's life, if he can keep up the ruse that he's the dread, sexy mastermind
"Bob X", foil Natasha's evil plot, and most important, keep his wife from finding out!
