The Dining Room

Play


Overview


Synopsis

The Dining room is set in an ordinary, uptight household. The area where any family came together everyday daily or for any occasion. The play is a labyrinth of cross-related scenes. All of which consist of comic relief, sorrow, or jealousy. If placed together, it may portray the image of the vanishing American culture: the upper-middle-class WASP. The actors change parts, morals and ages with expert skill as they show what they can do. It may be a little boy. It may be a conservative grandfather. Even hormonal teenagers to Irish governesses. Each character shows us new sets of things. In a smooth yet complex way, the scenes coalesce, turning the performance into a theatrical experience of a lifetime.
