Mooney on Theatre is giving away tickets to the premiere of Upstage Productions and pivotal(arts) theatre company inc.’s production of Jason Murray’s The Dinner on Wednesday, October 19 at 8:00PM at St Vladimir Institute, 620 Spadina Avenue, Toronto.
Eight friends come together for Thanksgiving Dinner! Of the friends, four have known each other since high school. During the dinner, adding a little spice to the discussion changes the gathering’s conversation-flavouring. Deep-rooted tensions – tensions that were never discussed over the past decade – are unearthed. With eight people finding it difficult to let the next person speak, everything from inauthentic relationships to relationships that are telepathically intersected are realized, as is loving immensely and hating violently. With the emotional devastation that takes place during the dinner party, the guests leave with very little to feel thankful for.
To be entered into the draw for a pair of tickets just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “The Dinner contest” by NOON on Tuesday, October 18, 2011.
