Set in a single dining room, six actors perform 18 overlapping scenes from different households. Each scene focuses around a different family during different time periods. At its heart, it tells the story of the dying culture of upper-middle class Americans who over time have focused less on tradition and more on family progress.
CAST REQUIREMENTS: (3 Males, 3 Females, All ethnicities encouraged to audition)
- The actors must be able to portray a wide variety of characters, from little boys to stern grandfathers, and from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids.
