The latest virtual play offering from Pop Up Theatre takes place in Las Vegas, in a small wedding chapel run by a fast-talking Elvis impersonator officiant, who spits out a dozen song references by the minute.
This farcical black comedy, written and directed by Scott McQuaid, launches its audience into an absurd story right from the beginning, when a groom discovers that his bride-to-be is in fact, a stranger.
The Elvis officiant is keen to keep the wedding on track despite the unusual circumstances, but is met by his rival—the Chinese Elvis impersonator from the chapel across the street who’s looking to steal his clients, and things become even more complicated. Then things go from weird to bizarre when the groom’s ex-fiancée and her new bad-boy husband turn up and rob them all.
As they say, “Anything can happen in Vegas”.
