'Dinner' by Moira Buffini
Sunday 28 June at 7pm.
There will be a second reading. open to all, and especially those who were interested but couldn't make the first reading.
'Dinner' is a comedy that examines the relationship between money and personal fulfilment.
The points it addresses are present throughout, disguised by humour, but are violently exposed at the conclusion where the humour is suddenly and unexpectedly pulled away.
An artist, a scientist and a sexpot are coming to dinner. Paige, the hostess is supposedly celebrating the success of her philosopher husband’s bestseller. However, it is clear from the outset that this is to be no ordinary dinner party, instead it is to be disturbing and dysfunctional. The dinner party from hell, intended to completely humiliate Paige’s husband Lars, and to offend the guests.
Each act of the play centres around one course of a dinner party attended by six guests and a hired waiter. These are the only characters: the roles are of equal sizes and exceptionally diverse, providing large, meaty roles for actors of both sexes to get their teeth into. The waiter barely speaks at all, but is onstage the entire time overseeing the mechanics of the meal, and is revealed at the end to be crucial to the play’s terrifically dark twist. The script is liberally peppered with coarse language, particularly the C word, so it isn’t for the easily offended!
Paige – very elegant and sophisticated- Paige is not a very nice or happy woman. She carries the play and is always in complete control. 30s to 50s
Lars – reasonably smart but a bit dog eared around the edges. Patronising. Thinks he's more important than he is. 50s
Wynne – hippy type. Comic timing and a trusting expression. 50s
Hal – genial, smart, but with communication problems. Can’t talk about his job and can’t communicate with his wife. Well meaning but unperceptive. Late 30s to 50s
Sian – beautiful, sexy, cold, hard faced. Resents the fact that no-one can see past her appearance to the brain within. 30
Mike – Working class. The most “normal” character. Comfortable with himself. An observer. He pushes the other characters, trying to show them how unfulfilling their chosen paths are. Mid 20s/30s
Waiter – Silent, sinister, expressionless, efficient, clean cut. Possibly the most challenging role as his physicality is his only expression. Any age.
The next play reading will be for the comedy drama "Mr Wonderful". It will be held at 7pm in the theatre bar on Sunday 14th June 2015. The play will be running June 18th - 25th 2016.
