The Dining Room

Bay Village Community Theater is proud to present its second full production, The Dining Room, written by A. R. Gurney and directed by Chris Bizub, the last two weekends of September at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Parkside Hall, 468 Bradley Road in Bay Village.

The Show will open on Friday evening, September 22 and run for five performances: September 22, 23, 29, 30 (8PM curtain) and one Sunday matinee on October 1 at 3PM.

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. (Note: Play has adult themes.)

Ticket prices are as follows: Adult: $12; Senior (60+): $10; Student (under 18): $10
