In the dining room of a well-to-do household, a family assembles for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions. A mosaic of scenes — funny, touching, rueful — create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class.
In A. R. Gurney’s “The Dining Room,” actors change roles, personalities and ages with virtuoso skill as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids.
Six actors portray more than 60 characters in Southside Theatre Guild’s production of “The Dining Room,” which opens Thursday, Feb. 4.
Directed by Gloria Wright, they delineate the dying lifestyle of a time gone by, and the now neglected room that was once a vital center of family life in a play that is often funny and rueful and, by the end, very moving.
Performance dates for “The Dining Room” are Feb. 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21. Friday and Saturday shows are at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees are at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets are $18 for Adults and $10 for Children under 12.
Valentine special: February 14th, Adult tickets $14.
