The Dominion Stage production of "Bachelorette" (photo courtesy Dominion Stage)(Updated at 3:00 p.m.) A community theater in South Arlington is showing “Bachelorette” this month, a play with a disclaimer of “adult situations, strong language, sexually suggestive situations, nudity, smoking and depictions of drug and alcohol use.”

Dominion Stage is producing the show, running at Theatre on the Run (3700 S. Four Mile Run Drive) Thursday, Friday and Saturday the next two weeks after opening this past weekend. It’s being billed as “part ‘Bridesmaids, part ‘The Hangover and part ‘Mean Girls’… only the girls are much meaner!” according to a promotional email.

The premise of the show is four friends convene in a hotel suite for a bachelorette party in New York City.

“Fueled by jealousy and resentment, the girls embark on a night of debauchery that goes from playfully wasted to devastatingly destructive,” the email states. “Their old fears, unfulfilled desires and deep bonds with each other transform a prenuptial bender into a night they’ll never forget.”

Tickets are on sale online and at the door for $20. Each show starts at 8:00 p.m. The play was turned into an R-rated moviem “Bachelorette,” starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and Rebel Wilson. It scored a 56 on Rotten Tomates.
