The play is as described - you very much feel as though you have entered someone's dining room. The play is relatively short and the time goings very quickly as you become completely engrossed in their story. I really enjoyed it and thought the acting was excellent.
The following two plays will be presented in rotating repertory.
That Hopey Changey Thing
It’s 7:00pm on the eve of Obama’s first midterm election, and Barbara’s hosting dinner for the family at her Rhinebeck, NY, home. Over the course of a meal, the Apples delve into lost family history, the social meaning of manners, and the fragile state of the American body politic.
Sweet and Sad
One year later, Barbara hosts a lunch on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Uncle Benjamin is going downhill, Marian has moved in, and Richard — who was working in the Trade Center a decade before — tries to treat the day like any other.
