In A.R. Gurney's Pulitzer Prize nominated play, nearly half a century passes in the course of a single day in the most singular of rooms - where people gather, meals are eaten, conversations begin, and generations converge. The Dining Room chronicles the American Family and the keeping and breaking of traditions. In what has been described as "a seamless collection of moments," the show presents a spectrum of glimpses into the human condition: the joys, sorrows, love and comedy that accompany family life. The scenes, which range from the comic to the serious, explore the dynamic relationships of family life.

"…often funny and rueful and, by the end, very moving." —NY Times.
