Copenhagen Theatre Circle is proud to present a new interpretation of A.R. Gurney’s The Dining Room – a classic from the American modern theatre.
18 short, interrelated and intertwining scenes each tell the story of a different family during different time periods, and in the centre of their interactions is the same dining room, bringing them together. Expect the unexpected, with characters from different time periods appearing on stage simultaneously – before Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, there was The Dining Room.
The original play was written about White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) families in the US. Our director, Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen, will bring the stories into the 21st century, relocating us to Europe, where we see the same longing for, and fear of traditions dying out in favour of a faster, more power-hungry society and giving it a deliciously modern twist.
About the director

His first production was This is a Test, by Stephen Gregg, with which he won first place at Missouri’s regional directing competition.

That Theatre Company presents God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza
A viciously funny and biting comedy that takes place in the aftermath of a playground fight between two schoolboys. Their parents decide to “meet” to talk it out. What starts as a polite discussion soon degenrates into verbal warfare with all four adults revealing their own issues and true colours.
Winner of both the Tony and Laurence Olivier Award for “Best Play” – God of Carnage is a fastpaced comedic satire described as a “comedy of manners…without the manners.”

Why Not Theatre presents WIT by Margaret Edson
Vivian Bearing, a professor in English renaissance literature, has been admitted to hospital, where she is being treated for advanced metastatic ovarian cancer. All her adult life she has hidden her real persona behind a crisp, academic mask. But now, as hospital doctors and personnel barge into her room at all times of day and night and refer to her in the third person as though she were just another statistic, Vivian finds it increasingly difficult to cope and come to terms with her new situation.
Pulitzer prize-winning WIT is a heartbreakingly funny, unsentimental and uplifting story about human relationships, values, forgiveness and empathy, seen in the light of a woman’s imminent death.
On stage: Sue Hansen-Styles, Andrew Jeffers, Bennet Thorpe, Miriam Yeager, Eira Pryce
