Soulpepper presented this play by A. R. Gurney, a play often described as an examination of a vanishing culture – the WASP one. Certainly there is no plot, no story arc to keep you engaged. Instead, a series of vignettes reveal the life that has happened in this dining room.
An excellent cast of six actors played about 50 roles, shifting effortlessly from one to the next. The scenes shifted equally effortlessly with one starting before the other had ended.
Brenda Robbins, Sarah Wilson and Courtney Ch’ng Lancaster took the women’s roles with Diego Matador, Derek Boyes and Jeff Lilico taking on the men. Not a slip among the lot of them!
