DINNER WITH FRIENDS
Dinner With Friends
by Donald Margulies | Directed by Andrew Vogel
Falcon Theater proudly presents the second in itâ€™s â€œFourth Wallâ€ series, DINNER WITH FRIENDS by Donald Margulies.
Falcon Theaterâ€™s Fourth Wall series is a venue for the unique. The Fourth Wall series was conceived to be an opportunity for Falcon Theater to produce shows that donâ€™t fit into our regular seasons â€¦ because of size, audience demographics, or artistic challenges. It can be a venue for new plays, new directors, intimate theatrical experiences and even staged readings.
DINNER WITH FRIENDS, the 2000 Pulitzer Prize winning play, revolves around the close relationships of two married couples who arrive at crossroads in their marriages.
This insightful, bittersweet drama features Tracy M. Schoster, Angel Zachel, Ted J. Weil, and Mike Fielder. Director Andrew Vogel, an amateur chef with a degrees in theater and culinary arts, is excited about this production because it combines two things about which he is passionate. According to Vogel, â€œimportant life-events are often centered around meals, especially around the dinner tableâ€.
â€œWhen we are children, one of our first social interactions is with our parents at the dinner table,â€ Vogel says, â€œWe learn the importance of communicating our everyday experiences with friends and family around the table and that continues when we become adults.â€
Vogel believes that many couples will see something familiar in this production. At times funny and tragic, the play deftly â€œpulls back the curtainâ€ on how our relationships change, grow, and sometimes end.
DINNER WITH FRIENDS contains subject matter and language intended for mature audiences only.
Performance dates: March 31, April 1, 7, and 8 at 8:00 p.m.
Tickets are $15.00 for Adults and $12.00 for Students and Seniors.
