Dinner with Friends on the menu at Leamington's Loft Theatre

Ian Hughes 13th Sep, 2018

DINNER with Friends is on the menu at Leamington’s Loft Theatre from September 26 to October 6.

Donald Margulies Pulitzer Prize-winning play sees the complexities of marriage and friendship dissected with wit and intelligence in the four-cast play.

Food writers, Gabe and Karen watch their closet friends, Beth and Tom – who they introduced to each other – go through a heart wrenching break-up.

But in attempting to help, Gabe and Karen begin to question their own relationship with each other. Will the marriages and friendships survive?

Dinner With Friends was first performed in 1998 and made its off-Broadway premiere the following year. The play received its UK premiere at the Hampstead Theatre in London in 2001 to critical acclaim, and the Loft’s staging will be the UK amateur premiere.

Director Robert Lowe said: “I am thrilled to be directing the UK amateur premiere of this beautifully written play with such a strong cast. The play is a very funny and at times brutal examination of the friendships across two marriages as one begins to dissolve, which everyone can relate to.”
