    Ashbash.... a love story

    “Why aren’t you married?” The question stalked Ashley for years.

    Amusing, unflinchingly honest, and deeply profound, this ultimately inspiring - and award-winning - documentary follows one woman’s journey of self-exploration from full-on panic over being single to her epiphany that she does not have to get married; that her single life and all the many relationships in it are worth celebrating - in style.

    Ashley hosts the legendary “AshBash”, inviting 200 guests to the wedding reception she never had. Ashley toasts herself (“I know, I know - there’s only a 50% chance this is going to work out”), lives out her dream of playing piano with a live band, and experiences her “first dance” - a hip-hop number she performs with her sister.

    Standing the traditional happy ending on its head, the film salutes the power of possibility, connection, and joy. Come join the party - and experience a phenomenon like no other!

    Much of the film was shot in and around the Boston area. “AshBash” features the artwork of Emmy-winning Bonnie Timmons (of “Caroline and the City” fame) and the original music of local jazz legend Rusty Scott.

    Meet the director (Heidi Sullivan) and subject (Ashley Norwood); Q&A to follow the screening.”
