1/13 The Dining Room

01/10/2015

This Tuesday, JANUARY 13th, Play Club West returns for 2015 with a reading A. R. Gurney’s, THE DINING ROOM.  Dining-Room-Andesite-v2 The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household.The actors change roles, personalities and ages as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. 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 Thanksgiving dinner; a daughter, her marriage a shambles, pleads futilely to return home, etc. The varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.
