by A.R. Gurney


Directed by Shelby Brammer


Set in the dining room, the place where families used to assemble daily for breakfast and dinner and special occasions, the action is comprised of a mosaic of interrelated scenes taking place over different years, during different eras, as the actors change roles, personalities and ages, portraying a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.

A brilliantly conceived and richly humorous theatrical tour de force about the now neglected room which was once a vital center of family life.

New York Daily News.

"…often funny and rueful and, by the end, very moving." —
