The Dining Room is centered on the dining room table that could have been in any typical middle class American household where the family gathers for their meals and holiday celebrations. The six actors play a variety of roles in a multitude of scenes that could have taken place in so many families. The scenarios are sometimes comical, sometimes thoughtful, but always resonate with truth.
“Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events; A father lectures his son on grammar and politics; a boy returns from boarding school to discover his mother’s infidelity; a senile grandmother doesn’t recognize her own sons at Christmas dinner; a daughter, her marriage a shambles, pleads futilely to return home, etc.
Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.” (Dramatist Play Service website)
