You have an invitation to eavesdrop on the action in THE DINING ROOM in the Warehouse Theatre on September 12, 13, 19, 20 at 7:30 and September 14 at 2:30. This brilliantly conceived and humorous theatrical tour de force (and Off-Broadway success) by A.C. Gurney is set in a 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 action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, some rueful—which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP. The six 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.
PLANS FOR HG FALL STRATFORD FESTIVAL TRIP ANNOUNCED
The iconic musical Man of La Mancha, The Beaux’ Stratagem, a comedy, and Crazy for You, a musical comedy add up to lots of laughs and excitement for those with valid passports lucky enough to sign up for the three plays scheduled for Hamilton-Gibson’s 15th annual theatre excursion to the Stratford Festival of Canada.
As part of its ongoing educational and cultural outreach mission, Hamilton-Gibson Productions is conducting the three-day, three-play theatre trip to Stratford, Ontario on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 3, 4 and 5.
THE DINING ROOM Described as a “comedy of manners” the play is set in a single dining room where 18 scenes from different households overlap and intertwine. A mosaic of interrelated scenes, the play creates an in-depth portrait of the upper-middle-class WASP, a ‘species’ which, for all intents and purposes, has virtually vanished from the West County’s neck of the woods.Performances at the Warehouse Theatre: September 12, 13, 19, 20 at 7:30 PM and September 14 at 2:30 PM
