Summary
Believing that lively, contentious debate is the heart and soul of a dinner party, a domestic artist and perfect hostess has invited an assortment of opinionated personalities to share a surreal meal. The guests at this exquisite feast of food and argument confront the global implications of September 11 and beyond in an urgent, impassioned, and hilarious work that was applauded at Actors Theatre of Louisville’s Humana Festival and Off Broadway.
