From Award-Winning Playwright A. R. Gurney

Set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions, The Dining Room is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes--some funny, some touching, some rueful--where actors change roles, personalities and ages as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events; dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.

 “...brilliantly conceived and richly humorous theatrical tour de force…hilarious and touching…as comic sketch crazily succeeds comic sketch a whole pattern of American life emerges…" —NY Post.


 "THE DINING ROOM serves a banquet of theatrical riches." —NY Daily News.
