A.R. Gurney’s classic 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 comprised of 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.
“Hilarious and touching…as comic sketch crazily succeeds comic sketch a whole pattern of American life emerges.”
– The New York Post
“A thoughtful and superbly written comedy!”
“Often funny and rueful and, by the end, very moving.”
– The New York Times
