SONOMA ARTS LIVE ANNOUNCES AUDITIONS FOR
THE DINING ROOM
BY A.R GURNEY, DIRECTED BY JOEY HOEBER
SHOW REHEARSES IN DEC AND JAN AND RUNS JAN 18 FOR 11 SHOWS
ON THE ROTARY STAGE IN ANDREWS HALL SONOMA COMMUNITY CENTER
WHATS IT ABOUT:
The play is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the place where the family assembled daily for breakfast and dinner and for any and all special occasions.
The action is a mosaic of interrelated scenes—some funny, some touching, some rueful—which, taken together, create an in-depth portrait of a vanishing species: the upper-middle-class WASP.
The 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. Each vignette introduces a new set of people and events; a father lectures his son on grammar and politics; a boy returns from boarding school to discover his mother's infidelity; a senile grandmother doesn't recognize her own sons at Thanksgiving dinner; a daughter, her marriage a shambles, pleads futilely to return home, etc.
Dovetailing swiftly and smoothly, the varied scenes coalesce, ultimately, into a theatrical experience of exceptional range, compassionate humor and abundant humanity.
