This amateur production of Dinner is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd, a Concord Theatricals Company.
Lars is celebrating the fact that his popular philosophy book Beyond Belief has become a bestseller. His wife Paige (a self-confessed ‘Uberbitch’) plans a surprise dinner party to mark the occasion: Primordial Soup, followed by Apocalypse of Lobster and, for dessert, Frozen Waste. Her guests include an artist, a scientist and an attractive news journalist. Then Mike (a stranger marooned in the fog after crashing his van) arrives unexpectedly. Add a mysterious waiter, hired from an obscure website, and you have a recipe for the dinner party from hell.
Moira Buffini is one of Britain’s wittiest playwrights and this chilling black comedy will have audiences laughing one moment and flinching in disbelief the next.
