The Dining Room is a thought-provoking comedy featuring vignettes from a series of families that all take place in the same dining room over multiple generations. Taken together, they tell the story of America’s transition from a society focused on the upper middle class to a culture where progress is replacing tradition. The play was a finalist for the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
