UNDER THE LIGHTS presents
The Dining Room by A.R. Gurney
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7 FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 2010
DINNER 6:00 p.m., PERFORMANCE 6:45 p.m.
Each spring, the Athenaeum hosts a production by Under the Lights, CMCs student-run theater group. This year, UTL will perform The Dining Room, written by A.R. Gurney in 1981.
The play takes place in a typical dining room of a well-to-do household, and explores the lives of the families that have inhabited it over the years. It consists of eighteen independent scenes: some funny, some rueful, and some poignant. Throughout, the actors take on a range of characters: from small children to stern grandfathers to teenagers drinking when their parents are away. The scenes coalesce to tell a story about upper class American life, rich with humor and humanity.
The all-student cast features Nico Brancolini 11, Chloe Cotton 12, Shamil Hargovan 10, Will Kahn 12, Bri Riggio 10, Julia Starr 12, Max Sterling 10, Caroline Taylor 10, and Andie Wheatley 13. Cory Davia 10 directs.
