ABOUT THE PRODUCTION
The Dining Room is a classic from the American modern theatre. With 18 different vignettes that all take place in the same dining room and a cacophony of characters ranging in age and stature, this play was at the forefront of ushering in a new generation of theatre while bidding a fond farewell to the affluent WASP (White Anglo-Saxon Protestant) culture of the northern United States. When first produced it was unique, stylish and provocative, and our production aims to be just as much so.

Our director, Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen, plans on bringing this production into the 21st century, relocating it to Europe, where we see the same longing/fear for a dying-off of traditions in favour of a faster, more power-hungry society, and opening it up to be played by all types of people, not just WASPs. Our production will be even sexier, more provocative and more dangerous.
