Dinner at Eight
- by George S. Kaufman & Edna Ferbe
- directed by Donald W. Ilko & Barry Brunetti
- Dinner at Eight is a sophisticated comedy that involves the Oliver Jordan family in a whirl of amusing encounters which never addresses the underlying and unspoken tragedies of the Great Depression. Millicent Jordan is obsessed with social status and plans a fabulous dinner party for an aristocratic English couple at her Park Avenue home. The guests include a philandering doctor, an over-the-hill alcoholic actor and a gauche, nouveau-riche couple who are loathed but powerful. While Millicent spends her days focused on herself we witness the betrayals, lies, and deceptions of her family, guests and staff.
