When one of America's most celebrated playwrights holds a mirror up to modern relationships, are you strong enough to look? This the challenge issued in Donald Margulies' Pulitzer-winning Dinner with Friends, now at Glenview's Oil Lamp Theater. Gabe and Karen, a happily married couple, have been friends for decades with Tom and Beth, also married. Everything changes when Beth reveals that Tom has been unfaithful and their marriage is on the verge of imploding. The story is not the divorce, however, but the shockwave effect it has on Gabe and Karen's relationship. At first they feel forced to pick sides, then they begin to notice the cracks in their own marriage. This "rueful comedy" exposes the insecurities that everyone faces when big changes happen in their lives. The characters are real and relatable: They might be your friends, your family ... they might even be you. Learn More
Venue was great! Free snacks, nice lobby area....the only negative is the seats...they are folding chairs with worn out cushions...caused numb butt, not just for us, but we saw many seated in front of us shifting in their seats frequently trying to get comfortable. I did see someone brought a seat cushion...so they must have had past experience at this venue.Come Blow Your Horn info • Sep 22 2014 star this tip starred

Loved the play and LOVED the theater. Am so glad we discovered it through Goldstar. The lobby is like being in someone's living room and the proprietor is kind enough to offer homemade cookies and bowls of nuts gratis. The theater is very small but has "stadium seating" so you have a good view of the stage no matter where you're sitting. You can also BYOB and there is no charge of corkage or glasses. My husband and I plan on returning often. As for the play, it was light-hearted and well-acted. Amazing how 10 actors could perform on such a small stage without bumping into one another. I highly recommend it!
