Wilkes University Theatre presents the sentimental comedy, The Dining Room. The performances will take place on April 4, 5 and 6 at 8 p.m. with matinee performances on April 6 and 7 at 2 p.m. The production is at Wilkes’ Dorothy Dickson Darte Center for the Performing Arts, 239 S. River St., Wilkes-Barre.
The Dining Room features a series of vignettes and highlights a variety of characters as they go about their daily business. Each of the eighteen scenes, which range from the comic to the serious, explores the dynamic relationships of family life. Set in the dining room of a typical well-to-do household, the action is comprised of interrelated scenes. Each story is focused on a different family, set in different time periods, each of which has in its possession the same dining room furniture set. The play is by A.R. Gurney.
General admission is $10, $5 for students and seniors and free for all Wilkes students, faculty and staff with ID. Parking is available at the Henry Student Center along with handicapped accessible options. For more information, please call the box office at 570-408-4540.
