March 27- April 6
Main Street Players is proud to present A.R. Gurney’s “The Dining Room” – a unique, entertaining, thought-provoking theatrical experience you don’t want to miss! Set within the confines of a single dining room, the play offers vibrant snapshots of a host of characters over the course of several decades. Six actors join forces to depict dozens of characters in this distinctive and ambitious ensemble show, giving the audience a humorous yet insightful examination of a vanishing culture. It could be argued that the most significant character in the show is not a person, but rather the dining room itself, which stands resilient as a colorful variety of human beings come and go. Through the play’s many brief yet fascinating segments, you’ll meet characters young and old, wise and foolish, subdued and boisterous. Many of these individuals share little connection with each other aside from the dining room they inhabit, but as the play unfolds, one begins to see a larger portrait of American society’s past.
Main Street Players is sponsored in part by the generosity of Primerica, The Ingram Foundation, Griffin Area Arts Alliance, Central Georgia EMC Corporation and the Grassroots Arts Program of the Georgia Council for the Arts. These companies and our local audiences help bring first-class theater to the Griffin-Spalding County area for over ten years.
