About the Play

Written by: A. R. Gurney


This comedy is set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, and moves through a mosaic of interrelated scenes - some funny, some touching, some rueful. 

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 Christmas 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.
