The Dining Room, 2016

May 13-15, 2016
Fri & Sat 7:30 pm
Sun 2:00 pm

The Dining Room is a richly humorous theatrical tour de force in which eight performers portray an array of diverse characters as they delineate the dying lifestyle of wealthy WASPdom, and the now neglected room which was once a vital center of family life. This production will be directed by Manchester native, Amanda Pawlik.

Amanda is delighted to be directing The Dining Room at Jean’s Playhouse and to share her experience as an actor and director with the Playhouse Players community. She is passionate about this script for many reasons -including the fantastic opportunity it gives actors to stretch themselves by playing several characters in both comedic and dramatic scenes. The play, which follows the challenges and triumphs of many generations all around the same dining room table, tugs at the heartstrings for a time long past, providing a show that should be both exciting to work on in rehearsals and to share with audiences.
