September 11 - 12 (Repeats Sept. 18-19; 25-26)…..Children and Adults Theatrical Studio Presents "Dining Room" - A.R. Gurney's comedy of manners, "The Dining Room," will be directed by Chris Davis. The 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. The actors change roles, personalities and ages with virtuoso skill as they portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. 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 in 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. The cast includes Pat Price, Andy Hernandez, Kim Klafka, Mickie Klafka, Jeff Shirey and Michelle Trice. Be sure to get your tickets at Children and Adults Theatrical Studio, 2405 34th St; 7:30 p.m.
