BY A.R. GURNEY

DIRECTED BY DR. ANNA FILIPPO

APRIL 12 - 15 & 19 - 22, 2018

Set in the dining room--or many dining rooms--Gurney's play centers on the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast, dinner and special occasions. The action is a mosaic of interrelated scenes which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP.  The actors portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids to create a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.


All performances take place in the new Blackstone theatre.
