Theater: “The Dining Room” at Southampton Arts Center

April 26 @ 7:00 pm April 28 @ 2:00 pm

The Dining Room

April 26-April 28, Friday & Saturday at 7 p.m., Saturday & Sunday at 2 p.m. 

Once upon a time, before open concepts and eat-in kitchens became the must-have element of a home, the dining room was second only to the kitchen as the heart and hearth of any dwelling. In 1982, A R Gurney examined the worth, value and purpose of the center of most family holidays, declamations, disagreements and life-altering events. 

18 vignettes examine this room and its versatility and variety of functions – humorously, pointedly, poignantly and with great reverence and reflection.

Directed by Michael Disher, A R Gurney’s The Dining Room features Daniel Becker, Susan Cincotta, Susan Conklin, Richard Gardini, Tom Gregory, Barbara Jo Howard, Jenifer Maxson, Franco Pistritto, Jack Seabury, Michaal Lyn Schepps, Christopher Tyrrko and Gerri Wilson.

Stage Management and Design by Joseph Giovingo and Lighting and Sound by Kenneth Blessing.

“…hilarious and touching…as comic sketch crazily succeeds comic sketch a whole pattern of American life emerges…” —New York Post.“THE DINING ROOM serves a banquet of theatrical riches.” —New York Daily News.

“…a thoughtful and superbly written comedy…” —Variety.

“…often funny and rueful and, by the end, very moving.” —The New York Times.
