The Dining Room
By A.R. Gurney
Directed by Charles "Skip" Grover
Sometimes it's hard to admit that we, as human beings are inherently nosey creatures -- we are fascinated with ourselves. The Dining Room, a well-crafted and thought-provoking play, offers a small glimpse into the very personal lives of some ordinary and extraordinary people. A small cast portrays dozens of familiar characters as they converse and comment on issues such as table manners, morals, work ethics, youth, old age, death, homosexuality, and adultery. As we are transported to different dining rooms throughout the last century, we understand how society’s views, attitudes and rules have changed regarding these issues. The Dining Room evokes memories of childhood and satisfies our curiosities about other people’s personal lives.
