A.R. Gurney’s heartwarming, compassionate play, The Dining Room, takes the stage at Mesa Community College’s Theatre Outback in the EXP Theatre later this month. A preview performance will take place on Wednesday, September 26 at 7:30 pm with regularly scheduled performances on September 27 & 28 at 7:30 pm and a matinee on September 29 at 2:00 pm.
The Dining Room is a mosaic of interrelated scenes - some funny, some touching, some rueful - which together, create an in-depth portrait of the vanishing lifestyle of the upper-middle class WASP. The play also displays the end of the formal dining room; the place where the family met daily for meals, talked and engaged one another with the problems and the conflicts of the day, into a society where the family that eats together regularly is the oddity instead of the norm. The action of The Dining Room dovetails and coalesces ultimately into a theatrical piece of exceptional range, compassionate humor, and abundant humanity.
Tickets are on sale now. Prices are $10 for general admission and $7 for seniors and students with I.D.’s. All seats are only $5 for the September 26, preview performance. Due to limited seating in the EXP Theatre, it is highly recommended that tickets be reserved in advance. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 480-461-7172. Tickets for remaining seats will be available for purchase at the door.
