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

We saw the final performance of this play. It was as enjoyable as The Girl in a Freudian Slip. The show actually started early because everyone was there. If you were on a committee to decide which of the current patients who needed a heart transplant, what criteria would you use to make your decision? And would you be affected if someone offered the hospital $50 million to have his son be the one selected?

I would highly recommend this show--it's an intriguing plot, well acted, and based on current practices used in deciding who gets a transplant organ. The playhouse is delightful & they give you salted nuts & M&M's to munch on--that was a surprise...continued
