The Orange Players Assoc., Inc. is seeking a Director for our spring production “THE DINNER PARTY” by Neil Simon to be presented on May 3, 4, 10 and 11 at 7:30 PM at the High Plains Community Center, 525 Orange Center Road, Orange, CT 06477.
This is a Comedy with much humor/farce – typical Simon rapid one liners and some very serious overtones as well. It is a full-length play presented in one act, no intermission, with a run time of 90 – 100 minutes. The play calls for a cast of 3 women and 3 men of various ages. The time is the present. The stage set is for a dinner party at a restaurant in France.
Here is a decidedly French dinner party served up in a chaotic mode that only a master of comedy could create. Five people are invited to dine at a first rate restaurant in Paris. They do not know who the other guests will be or why they have been invited. Tossed together in a private dining room, they have a sneaking suspicion that this unorthodox dinner party will forever change their lives. John Ritter and Henry Winkler starred in the wildly successful Kennedy Center production and on Broadway.
“A blizzard of one liners…The audience can bank on some good laughs.” – New York Daily News
“Frequently hilarious but also dangerously serious…An invitation you’ll be glad you accepted.” – New York Post
