The Dining Room is a uniquely American comedy of manners. A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama, it presents a series of 18 vignettes all set in different eras that intertwine and overlap, bound together by the location: the family dining room. It explores changing times and traditions and indeed change itself, while offering the proposal that family is the constant. A brilliant ensemble piece, six actors play more than 50 roles of all ages, and we are pleased to produce this play submitted for the season by the theatre students.
